Suzan, this one made me smile. Nice reflections; I can hardly see where the real meets reflection on some of them.

Very tranquil and well composed, Suzan.

I do not know the name of these birds but I believe they dine on insects.

Though not aquatic birds, they skim the surface of the water just a couple of inches over it.

They are great aviators!

I think they're sandpipers. The run in and out of the surf on little speed motor legs and wheneverI spend time looking at them they make me laugh also.

Suzan, I love this shot! (being a birder and lover of same, it's just the right subject to make me like it)

It's not quite enough of a closeup for me to definitely identify the species, but I believe these are probably Least Sandpipers. They use their longish bills to probe the sand to find little crustaceans, worms,and other sand-inhabiting creatures to eat.

I hope you'll forgive me Suzan, but this is the second one of your reflection threads that I am going to post a modified image to. Were this photo to be more closely cropped, it would be one I'd print out and frame and put on my wall. Sort of like this:

Geoffs, yours focuses more on the birds, which are adorable, but I think I prefer Suzan's, personally, because it shows a little of the expanse, contrasting the tiny birds. It's such a great subject either way! :-)
