Just came from a blog with a perfect miniature shadow and here I find a shadow that doesn't resemble its owner at all. Shadows are such fun!

Patti said...

Adorable captures. I'd love to get close-ups like that.

You take good photos, Carolyn! That second one with the foam and the reflection is beautifully captured! :)

You and Eileen take very good bird photography. You have taught me a lot of birds and their names.

I love the foam and the shadow on the second shot.

Wonderful photos!

Robin said...

What happy little guys with their utterly improbable legs. Great catch.

AL said...

Keeping cool by the sea...or just waiting for a big catch?

Pam said...

Nice captures, Carolyn. I like to watch the antics of the sandpipers as they run up and down the beach trying to avoid the waves.

Kitty said...

Beautiful photography! They're lovely birds - and so graceful.

I really like how they appear to be tiptoeing through the water. (Maybe just my imagination. LOL)
