On the wing

Ruddy turnstones and sanderlings on the wing at Bahia Honda beach

There were quite a few ruddy turnstones and sanderlings gathering together and poking about in the washed up seagrass along the shore at Bahia Honda beach. When people approached, they would take off, swing out briefly over the waves and return to their foraging after the people passed.

Dive right in

A brown pelican dives for prey off of Bahia Honda beach in the Florida Keys.

We watched this brown pelican for quite a while as it hunted off the shore of Bahia Honda Beach in the Florida Keys. This shot is nanoseconds before splashing in.
