Dolphins have always intrigued me.
I love watching them swim in front of ships as though they are surfing the wave. It is their way to get a free ride and glide without having to put in much effort into it.
It seems a little bit dangerous but what do I know.
Pelicans are so amazing they fly with such grace as they glide in for a landing.
Here are a few pictures of some brown Pelicans.
They seem to spend a lot of times floating around in the water in between fishing for their food.
I took these pictures near Galveston and the Pelicans were everywhere.
These laughing gulls were at the Texas City Dike and they were all happy as they could be perched on concrete or rock.
They do not seem to be scared at all but they do seem to be watching you all the time.
This reddish egret was posing for my camera in Galveston.
Most of the time the shorebirds quite use to people being around on the beaches. If you make a sudden movement they will leave and then come back again.
I really love going to the beach and getting to take pictures of the shorebirds.
These tiny sandpipers are always in a large group close to the waters edge it’s pretty easy to get their pictures with their reflections.
We spent yesterday at the beach because that was what I wanted to do for my birthday which so happens to be today.
Normally my birthdays are always spent doing something that involves taking pictures because that is what I love to do.
I will be sharing more pictures of the beach trip this week.
