A Bird that I captured images of on State Beach Ventura, California. A Willet or I can call them what my boys called them, "Wave runners". They would run back and forth with the waves and probing the sand for a meal like the bottom image.
An image in the early autumn woods on my brothers property north of Johnson City. I like the simple peaceful beauty of this shoot. I remember that it was a very nice temperate day, silent with just the hint of a slight breeze. No birds singing, no automobile sounds, no plane, "No nothing!" I could hear my self think almost, so to me it was a very enjoyable day for a hike even with out finding birds that I love so much to take images of. "Honesty" better to fail with honor than succeed by fraud. (Sophocles)
