Rain on Gandy beach

Laughing gull taking a bath.

Least sandpiper taking a bath.

BIG and little.  Juvenile laughing gull on the left and least sandpiper on the right. I forget how small those sandpipers are until I see them next to a gull.

Least sandpiper walking around.

Sandwich tern with a mouthful.

I stopped on the Gandy bridge beach on the way home from work hoping for some lightning pictures. The rain came but no lightning.

  6. Hi Dina, picked up on your Blog via another Blog I follow. You have some great shots. I've now subscribed and will continue to follow with interest. Love Florida and live in the UK. Hope to retire to Florida for the UK winters in about 5 years time. Can't wait.
