Searching The Marsh | Solitary Sandpiper | New York
Tiny shorebirds like the Solitary Sandpiper can be difficult to photograph.
Most obviously they are small. So it can be difficult just to even see them. Just try to be aware of movement in your field of view.
Due to how small the Solitary Sandpiper is it can be close enough for a good photo. They move around a fair bit and can be easily spooked.
Sometimes the simple facts of the environment where you are photographing might limit your ability to get close.
Being a shorebird the Solitary Sandpiper can often be obscured by vegetation, rocks, or stumps.
They are so small that when the Solitary Sandpiper takes flight it is quickly out of range for a good photo.
