Least Sandpiper by Kimberly Chadwick

Currently unavailable for purchase


Taken at Sweetwater Wetlands, Tucson,AZ Jan 2010

Least Sandpipers breeds across a large swath of Alaskan and Canadian tundra and muskeg. In migration it visits varied habitats, including muddy pond edges, rivers, wet farm fields, and fish hatcheries. It stays at the periphery of mudflats, where it picks at the surface for food. This is the only peep with yellow legs other than the Temminck’s and Long-toed Stints, both vagrants to Alaska.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
