1. Lovely!

Great picture! I love the little bird tracks in the sand and the long shadow. The way the sea foam splits the frame with a jagged edge.

5. Thanks so much, my dear MN2theMax, and welcome to DU!

I thought the bird tracks were just amazing. It was an astonishing moment that allowed me to capture this. I smile every time I see it.

2. The receding surf exposes sand creatures which become lunch.

6. Thank you, my dear 3Hotdogs! I didn't know that.

I see the birds pecking at the sand all the time, and I knew the sand holds their food, but I hadn't realized the wet sand really functions that way.

14. Thanks for your lovely remarks, my dear Hiawatha Pete!

I wasn't even thinking of that when I took this! It was February 2006 and I was a complete novice.

I just knew I liked what I saw!
