These Spotted Sandpiper images are from my last trip to Idaho and were taken near a creek in the Targhee National Forest. It was a bright evening and the sandpiper was standing on the rock bouncing its bottom up and down like they always seem to be doing.
After a bit the Spotted Sandpiper flew out into the creek and landed on a rock surrounded by cool, rushing water. This image was taken just before the sandpiper flew off for parts unknown. After looking at the map I believe this was Disaster Creek and now I am wondering how it got that name.
Life is good.
