My PSP Doodlings



Week 3

I saw two of these birds at Orange Beach, AL in April, 2003 and assumed they were mates. They seemed to be posing for me. I  was able to get very close to them and zoomed my lens in close.  This was taken at 6:29 a.m. when I went for a walk on the beach. I saw them several days in a row near the same spot. I've often wondered what happened to them after the destruction by the hurricane.

                                  snap the picture."

                                                             "Where's my mate?"

                                         When I get time, I will take the fence out of the background.










             There were bunches of jellyfish all over the beach when I took this picture.

The one-step fix looks pretty good on this one.
