Bird's eye view









Do you suppose this is what they mean by 

"bird's eye view"

I was getting a bit weary of backyard critters.

Perhaps you were too.

So, starting Sunday, 
these guys are going to be my backyard critters
because we are heading to the

beach!

Not the 'shore' .... remember this post

But before I leave, I think the squirrels have 
something they want to share.....

Tomorrow.


And remember that Fairy Hobmother
and all the wonderful comments you left a few weeks back?

Wish I could tag along with you - I won't get my beach fix until late September! (Great shots, by the way!!)

Debbie said...

yes.....around these parts (new jersey) we go to the beach, not the shore. it's a big debate but in order to call yourself a local, getting it right is a must!!!

p.s......i only love the beach in spring, fall & winter. summers i spend "at the pool"!!!!

Louise said...

Well, I'm not sure I understand the difference yet. Around here we have beaches, but then, we're only on a great lake, not the ocean. But, regardless of whether it's the shore or the beach, have yourself a wonderful time, get your toes wet, and your bottom sandy.

Debbie said...

ooooohhhhh damn, i forgot about the pictures, they are awesome!!!!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Have a wonderful time at the beach. Love your bird shots!

TexWisGirl said...

cute cute cute! happy shore/beach/sand/sun/water days!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Love those sandpipers! Looking forward to your beach photos!

Judy said...

I wish I could come :)

Snappy Di said...

Hmmm, I would say if it has sand you can lay on it's a beach. If it's rocky then it's a shore? OR do only lakes have shores. And rivers have banks? Sheesh

Liza said...

I go to the beach...lately at about four in the afternoon when the sun is beginning to drop but still feels warm. I am blessed to live by the "shore.". ;)

Tammy said...

Makes me want to go to the beach! nice in flight shot.

Woody said...

Have fun, I'm not sure if we're going to the BEACH this year!

Jane said...

Enjoy your vacation - these are beautiful photos and wonderful edits.

urban muser said...

have fun. those bird photos are amazing!

Misty said...

Cali people call it the beach. Shore sounds like an east coaster thing. Great pics by the way.

Ginny said...

I have been scrolling through your posts, and you are an amazing artist with the camera!!! And I see a poem I think you wrote? Wow!! I have recently posted butterflies and a mommy bird feeding the baby, but my pictures are not near as good. That is my wish to the Fairy Hobmother, that my pictures are as good as yours!

Michaele said...

The chances of me seeing any beach anytime soon are non-existent. Can't wait for you to share. I have never seen birds like these.

Jean said...

Have a nice time at the shore or beach.:)
Very nice blog!!!

Ashley Sisk said...

These are incredible shots - looks like you were right up on them.

gina said...

Have fun at the beach...guess we'll be seeing some sea gulls on your blog? You do have a gift for photographing birds!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Shore? Is that an east coast thing? Out here in California it is the beach. Remember the Beach Boys? Don't think the Shore Boys would have made it. Then again, those birds are referred to as shore birds, not beach birds. Even here we call them shore birds. But I really like your photos, especially the last one. What kind of birds are they? I've never had much luck with photographing beach birds on the shore, I mean shore birds on the beach. Good grief, I am so confused.

Reena, Great shots--you captured them at the perfect moment. Have a wonderful time at the beach. Mickie :)

ladyfi said...

WOW - what magical shots!

Ruth said...

Reena, all three of these photos are great. I love birds, and I never seem to be able to photograph them very well. But at least I can see yours. The last one is so evocative!

faye said...

Enjoy your beach time.. sounds relaxing to me !!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Whatever it's called, I want to go there too because the heat and humidity have come back! I know you'll have a wonderful time!! I'll look forward to seeing that birds eye view of it!

deb duty said...

Hope you have a great beach trip and take lots of pics! The last photo is my favorite. I love the way they are looking at each other.

Jillsy Girl said...

I'll be about 10 days behind you! Have fun!

Catherine said...

Have fun at the beach Reena ~ and I look forward to what the squirrels are up to! :)
Happy Weekend!

Marcie said...

You made me smile!!! Yes - definitely a birds-eye view!

All nice but the first photo is spectacular!

Madi and Mom said...

Reena have a lovely trip to the beach. Which beach to you enjoy along the East Coast? Yes definitely the beach here too. I never understood why some call it the shore?!

Evelyn S. said...

What delightful beach/shore bird images!

EG Wow said...

Hmmm. Some birds have quite the view, don't they?

I think I need to check out your post about the beach vs shore. :))

Friko said...

ELK said...

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Amazing captures, Reena. A bit jealous you are going to the beach. Sounds like fun. Have a great time. :)

Sara said...

Beautiful shots, I love them all! Have a great time at the beach.

Dodie said...

I love these shots. How far away (or close) are you?

Country Girl said...

Your bird photos? They are beautiful.

I assume you're going to the Jersey Shore, where it's the Shore, not the Beach. Grew up in Jersey, so I know these things. Everywhere else is the Beach.
