Wave chasers

These little birds are sanderlings. A book nicknames them "wave chasers." I took these pictures yesterday, and yes, I did crop them. If I actually approached that close, they'd rise en masse and zoom away ... the way they're doing in the photo "Lovers," which I posted a couple weeks ago.

Walking on a nearby road in late afternoon, I noticed these brightly backlit daffodils.

Daffydown Ditty

This picture inspired this silly-dilly verse:


Daffy tried to turn and hide

Her petticoat as I walked by.

But Mr. Sun, low in the sky,

Saw right through her, and so did I!
