Just some random shots from Island Beach State Park at the Jersey Shore. The Sanderlings are always fun to photograph. Snowy Owls have made a return to New Jersey, stay tuned for future posts.

    beautiful photos – is that cloud cover in the background in the first photo? There was a report on the news that bald eagles are making a strong comeback in NJ – and their worst enemy is themselves. Like the article I sent you.


  2. Wondrous, Ray. Delight in the ‘ballet’. Puzzled by egrets with black beaks and black feet – Snowy Egrets have “Golden slippers” and I’m too weary from saving the planet today to go look up other egrets — cattle? Egrets shouldn’t still be here in Deceomber, let alone osprey. Amazing experiences continue to present themselves to you. Blessings and gratitudes, c

    Wonderful to see those east coast beach photos, with all that sunshine. Lifts the spirit right up. The birds before the crashing wave…amazing.
