Spotted these tiny little birds down at the beach, there like roadrunners, very fast little guys.

Very nice photos. Those fellows are quite fast and quite skittish I hear.

Very nice Turns, love the reflections in first. Looks like a pair of Least Sandpipers.

I also like the blue-yellow colour play here.

Thanks Iggy, HBG, and Marko for comments and looking, I've always only seen these birds from a distance, but these ones I was able to get within ten feet of. Maybe they were young and inexperienced ones, none the less a lucky day for me.
