This week Ann-Christine has given us the prompt of patterns. My choices this week all come courtesy of Mother Nature.
The tide was going out as we got to the beach and we set up shop directly behind a small tide pool. The tide pool was a favorite gathering place as small children played in it, the balls from a bocche game ended up in it and the birds came to check it out also.
I had watched this seagull for quite some time as he tried and failed to catch dinner. So I was just as excited to see him catch his meal as I was to capture the shot.
This gull was afraid to get his wings wet. He would venture out into the surf but immediately turn around as the next wave came in so I’m not quite sure how he expected to eat that night. But the pattern and colors under his wings are beautiful.
