Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

I Stand, Then I Fly

Man and I took advantage of a warm day to go sit on the beach.  We usually walk, but not this time.  Man proceeded to fall asleep.  From my lawn chair I sat and watched people, tried to take photos of buildings and the beach in the mist.  The longer I sat, the closer the gulls would get.  I snapped a lot of photos, and decided to try and capture "take off".  First, the one legged stand:

Then, take off.  This gull pretty much flew right at me.

I caught this one from the side.  Take off - -

It was rather nice to be able to sit for a long while and be quiet and take photo after photo.  Something I rarely get to do, Carol liked it!

He's huge! And, I want to see you in a bathing suit, sunning yourself on that beach.

Wonderful photos, Carol! You really captured some great moments. I bet it was nice being by the water . . . I like to just sit and watch all that is going on too!
