Have you read Jonathon Livingstone Seagull? If not, you should give it a try.

I think the birds in flight are stunning. The final photo is quite unusual and knocks me out with the reflections off the wings (or glow through them).

Jill said...

Your pictures make my heart sing!

Shrinky said...

My Journey With Candida said...

I think you would sing too if you could fly.

I love the last picture the best!

Kathryn Dyche Dechairo said...

Love, love, love these!!!

Sandra said...

I think amazing on the flight of the birds, on these photos, i like the original photos best. that first shot made me want to stand and stare. early one morning my friend and i got to the pier just before daylight. we went to watch the pelicans come in. we stood and watched as the sky filled with hundreds, maybe thousands of pelicans, they came from the island and settle on the beach and pier and in the water and i have never seen any sight so amazing.

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

Really good shots. I don't think there is anything more soothing than standing on the shore, breathing the salt air, and just watching the beauty of it all.

Patricia said...

Spectacular!

Riet said...

Beutiful photo's and captures here. Love them. Have a nice day

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

TexWisGirl said...

fabulous, reena!!!

Linnea said...

Excellent! I don't think I've ever seen so many birds in one spot on the beach before! I guess they've gathered from near and far to enjoy the beautiful sky and water.

Florida Farm Girl said...

Thank you for doing your part in bringing birds to the forefront. It's amazing how many are around us every day but you have to STOP AND LOOK to see them. They are going about their business, and if we want the joy, we have to look for them. Believe me, they are unbelievable in many ways. So, keep on keeping on, girlfriend.

I think that this reminds me of a beautiful thought by Halldor Laxness - an Icelandic Nobel laureate in Literature, who said:
Birds are happier than men. Their wings make all the difference.

Ginny said...

These take my breath away! You are a true artist, it is always such a joy to come here and see what you have next!

Evelyn S. said...

I don't want to fly....can't stand heights....but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your flight images! I think they are truly fabulous, Reena!

Madi and Mom said...

I think they sing because they realize how lucky they are to live in Anna Maria....I know I would sing if I lived there.
Kramer is invited to Madi's open house today...

Ann said...

Ali said...

Of course it is... I can't imagine flying without singing!!!

Nayana said...

What do u think? :) I think - I want to fly :) your blog title is missing moments but you always make me awww with your stunning captured moment :)

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Ha! If I could fly I'd sing, too. But not at the same time I'm flying because I know I'm too uncoordinated for that. :)

Love the photos with the blue and yellow tones to them. Stunning!

Steve said...

Awesome captures Reena....!!!

Gillian Olson said...

Great pictures, I'm not sure why they sing, but I am glad they do.

Oliag said...

I think that I have walked through those flocks of Anna Maria gulls and was thrilled too...

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

AMAZING! I especially love the last one...the color is so dramatic! WOW! ♥

Catherine said...

Wouldn't it be great to fly like a bird for just one day? To experience that freedom? Fantastic!
