Fave shot: birds in the surf, Palm Island FL USA

In sunny destinations, there’s always a lot of celebration for the daily occurrance – the setting of the sun. On Palm Island, its a de rigeur way to end the day, before the evening plans.

I headed to the end of the island, past the villas and homes to a small beach for sunset. And I found, I wasn’t the only one interested in this time of day at the beach:

Palm Island - birds

These birds were very busy – looking for edibles in the sand and keeping a close eye on the movement of the surf. I was impressed they didn’t get washed away, since they were so small and I knew the water could be strong.

Endlessly they kept searching as the sun set and the waves kept coming – and their tenacity to eat as much as possible before the day’s light disappeared was one of those wildlife moments that made me smile.
