    1. The cats here outsmart most dogs.
      Most times when we walk by very close, they just stay where they are and look at us like they want to say 'so what?!'

  2. Love your flight shots, Nicole! The second one is my favorite. It's great to see a white heron for a change, too. We don't have that here. Great close-ups and scenics, too!

    1. Thanks! The third one is my favorite :-)
      Hope I get some more good ones from that platform :)

      We have 4 different white Egret forms around :)

  3. Great set of shots. The ones of the gulls flying are stunning. The high stepping heron is fun and all the shots are beautiful. Good one of you too!

    1. Those birds are our usual winter guests :)
      Good to have them around or I would go bonkers ;-)

      I didn't take pics of the trash - it's there, but not nearly as bad as in the north.

  7. Fantastic captures of the gull and tern flying overhead. And the beach actually looks quite lovely.

    Also? It's good to see you, Nicole! :)
