Well camouflaged Purple Sandpipers, belying their name by pottering about in seaweed, looking, I assume for small marine animals, flies, etc. Taken at Ocean City, Maryland in 1971 with my first SLR camera, a Ricoh. I've been converting slides from that era and find that the great majority of them are complete rubbish - often out of focus and generally badly exposed. I'd probably have done better with a box brownie :-) However, for a while I'll be showing those that have survived reasonably well.
