A Skimmer Went A Skimmering

We took a drive the other evening with the top down on the car and ended up on the marshwalk in Murrells Inlet – the newer portion behind the Hot Fish Club.  There were a few egret waiting patiently for their dinner but this skimmer got my attention.  He only stayed long enough to catch a bite and then went on his way.

Photo Challenge – 2017 Favorite

To celebrate the end of the year, this week we are asked to share the most meaningful photo(s) we’ve taken in 2017.

Heron in Pastel

This photo was taken at sunset last month at Huntington Beach State Park.  It was a cool evening and while the colors in the sky were gorgeous, the colors reflected in the water outshone those in the sky.  

As the sun continued to set, the water turned a beautiful gold.  And all too soon, it was time to go home.

Photo Challenge – Temporary

This week we are asked to share a photo that says “temporary” to us.

The roseate spoonbills have been visiting the lowcountry the past few weeks on their way south for the winter.  You can’t miss them – pink feathers with a large, flat, spoon-shaped bill which they use to feed by sweeping their bill back and forth.

The arrival of the spoonbills always creates excitement among all “birders” and the topic of all conversation revolves around the “spoonies”.  The weather’s getting colder so our “temporary” residents will be leaving soon but I think I can say for all that the welcome mat is always out.
