Spotted Sandpiper in breeding plumage

When it is right – it is good! In my pursuit of trying to get the most out the CanonEOS7D I am so happy when I get a good capture. This lovely Spotted Sandpiper landed on this perfect perch in very nice light and stayed there for quite awhile so that I could work on the shot with the CanonEOS7D instead of my usual battle.
I was at one of the blinds in Jamaica Bay and had a nice cradle for the camera and Canon 100-400 mm lens. I set the CanonEOS7D focus mode to AF point expansion (manual selection) which I am starting to use more regularly and was able to use an ISO of 200 which helps so much with reducing the noise.
