Getting Ready for Flight ~ Starting to Think of Summer

With springtime here, it won’t be long until we will be heading for the shore to see sights like this. These waterfowl were seemingly unafraid of us last summer as we were walking down the beach. They stood there the longest time before the one decided to take flight.

Why do we love the sea?  It is because it has some potent power 
to make us think things we like to think.

  1. i like the dusk lighting in this. :)

  2. Oh R. Henri is so right!
    Some critters (animals) are behaving in strange (to people like us) manner as if to adjust/adapt to the changing environment.

  3. It's been summer here for months and months already ;>)... well summer-like anyway. Love the colors in the background of your picture.

  4. Lovely photo Genie - often, we too, see the birds on the beach. I especially love the sandpipers - do you have those too?
    Have a great day

  5. we have lots of sea gulls, even in my garden, as I live 5 minutes from the beach.

  6. Ahh, the joys of summer...except I am not really looking forward to it will be so HOT. But, I have good memories of beaches and mountain cabins and other joys!
