One of the hundreds of northern gannets affected by the oil spill recouperating. The sanctuary released a handful of the few remaining this past week.
Great egret eating at the beach entrance to the sanctuary. Not sure if it caught the fish itself or stole it from the santuary.
Laughing gulls in the fog on the beach.
It was a quiet morning on the beach due to the fog and impending storm.
Flying in the fog. There's always some kid chasing after the poor birds, even in the fog.
Fog on the beach is kinda cool (unless you're a tourist trying to get a tan). Luckly for me (and the tourist), most weekends right now are nice. But recently, on my trip to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, it was foggy until late in the morning. There weren't too many people out walking on the strip of beach that the sanctuary sits on. The beach was full of gulls hiding out until the fog lifted. It's hard to get good pictures in the fog, everything looks gray in the background. But, still, even a foggy walk on the beach is pretty great.
