Pelicans are my favorite beach bird! They just look huge and cumbersome, but can dive into an exact spot when looking for food!
It took days to get this shot! I followed their flight with my camera – until they went left when I veered right!
The Great Blue Heron is such a beautiful bird! And this one let me walk right up and take his picture! He didn’t seem to mind – perhaps he was watching the sunrise as were we!
How could anything so lovely be called ‘common’? Unfortunately this starfish had lost part of one arm.
Another bird that didn’t mind company on the beach – this Great Egret was close enough to touch!
This Snowy Egret was in the same area.
Didn’t want to get too close to this jellyfish!
Can’t forget the squawking terns and gulls!
I love the showy red beak!
Ritchey found this for me towards the end of our lovely week – a perfect Sand Dollar! I have it in a shadowbox frame on my desk.
The last night at sunset we were treated to the delightful play of several dolphins.
The show just kept getting better and better – I was snapping pictures as quickly as I could!
I took over 600 pictures!
And finally got this one! What a show! It was a wonderful ending to a lovely two weeks!
