Day of the Herons

That sounds a bit like a 1970s Cold War spy novel.

I went back to Lido for another sunrise yesterday.  I was hoping for photos of Pelicans but there were mostly a lot of Herons and Skimmers.  I tried to get photos of the Skimmers actually skimming the water but my camera wasn’t up to the task.

Here is a Heron watching the sun come up:

Another one, further down the beach, who seemed to just be relaxing.  The ability for these birds to stand still and do nothing is amazing.

When you see them head-on they can look pretty goofy.

And when the walk was over, this one was standing a few feet from my car as if he had been waiting for me to get back.
