Our World Tuesday: Wings, Silence, Cool Light

Lots of birds seem to start their day alone on the beach, though not so many people.  People tend to travel in pairs at any time of day.  Not me, though.  My partner is my camera.  I'm good with that; I like going home to family and a warm drink and news of who flew into the morning. 


I can't get enough of pelicans--especially this early riser.   I like the little birds on the beach, though I get more butt shots of them than anything else.


A look out the back window when the sun was good and up revealed this solitary hunter checking out the neighbors' new dock for perching potential.


This elusive heron is not the skittish bird he used to be. No need to screw up the moment with unnecessary drama when the sun is warming the ol' feathers.


Wishing you a good, peaceful week.

  9. It's so nice to enjoy a peaceful morning. You are doing a good thing.
    So do the pelicans stay where it's cold? I thought they would have gone further south.
