Early Bird Special by Weezilou

Early Bird Special

Though we were socked in with fog, we headed to the beach very early, thinking that even a foggy morning might be beautiful ... and we weren't disappointed. After many photos, it was at this moment the sun began to break through and I got a completely different set of morning beach photos.

I had corn tortillas to feed the gulls, but they couldn't be bothered to fly for photos. Ashton would throw them into the air, and when he stepped back, they'd *walk over* to eat their fill.

Little buggers ...
Super composition ans composition. Love this image.

@pamknowler ..haha! ...as in "Drop that food and step away!..." Thanks Pam! You always leave me such sweet comments, and I haven't been a very good friend to you (or many others...) in return, of late. Life will slow a bit for another week after we return home...

@chard I always loved the class clown who made us all laugh... I even remember, he was the son of a judge and his name was John Davis (good luck Googling that one!) So you, Richard, are my delightful class clown in this venue...and I always laugh out loud! What a delightful way to start the morning!

The lighting on this is really special -- your timing impeccable and you have a great title.

@taffy Thanks Taffy! After almost an hour of attempts, it was nice that the birds behaved and weren't in *a feeding-frenzy clump"! The lighting at that moment was a God-given gift for which I was most appreciative!

This is so perfect in every way, Louise. The lighting, composition! Such a cute capture of Ashton and the gulls.. Love the shadows and the haziness of that fog in the background.

For understandable reasons I`m very reluctant to fav. pic.`with kids but in this case I`ve to over rule my principles . Even without the boy it`s a fav. pic. Now it`s twice. Great shot of a lovely beach and the cute boy.
