Spider Breakfast

Walking through the woods one morning I found this spider having breakfast.

I don’t know much about spider identification but I believe this may be an American House Spider (Parasteatoda Tepidariorum), also known as the Cobweb Spider.

Beach Bum

What can I say about this photograph?  When I saw this dog playing on the beach I knew I had to get its picture.


Sanderling Display

Up and on the beach early one morning in late August I watched these two sanderlings interacting.  It wasn’t clear whether this was some type of courtship display or a standoff over which bird had domain over the beach.

Crab Digging In The Sand

These little crabs are so well camouflaged they are nearly impossible to see until they move.  This one was busy digging when I spotted it.  Each time it went back into in the hole I crept a little closer until I was able to get this photo.

Corolla Sunrise

Sometimes being a morning person pays off.  I took this photo during a trip to the beach last August.  I noticed the cloud bank that night and thought it was a shame the clouds probably wouldn’t be there at sunrise.  To my great surprise, the clouds barely moved overnight!  I awoke before dawn and watched this amazing sunrise slowly transform into morning.
