  6. I have no idea, but I have a feeling somebody somewhere is going to have a British Romance novel with a character by that name!

    Lovely picture, Patrick. Happy weekend to you!

  14. Awww, how lovely - and who cares what they are named? They never answer to it when called, anyway!

  15. I love reflection photos like this one. I also love watching those little birds run around. I'm terrible with bird names so all birds like these are sandpipers to me. :)

  16. Gorgeous photo, Pat. Have a great weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Aha ! These are NOT marbled Godwits, but they are "des barges marbrées" !!!

    Okay, this is the poorest joke of the weekend, i'm sorry, but I couldn't resist ("Barge marbrée" is the french translation for this type of Godwit... ;D).

    Nice picture, and nice reflection, anyway...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sylvia - thanks so much! Have yourself a nice weekend also. I'm glued to CNN...

    Shrinky - that is so true! Thanks!

    James - Me too! They are pretty cure flitting in and out of the surf.

    Talli - Thanks Talli! You have one also!

    'Tsuki - Oh, that's funny! I'd never even heard of a Godwit until I took this photo!

    ReplyDelete
  19. That's a beautiful snack time! Oh, for them...not me!

  20. i just saw some birds like this for the first time yesterday and took pictures of them ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pat,
    What a beautiful picture...I love the reflection in the water. I can't help you with the type of bird, but they are really cool; love their legs :) whew, whew...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I googled the name you suggested and it does look like them. Whatever type of shore bird you have captured, this is a great balanced photo and fabulous reflection!

    Bises,

  23. A double-double reflection! lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  24. There's something tender in the way they're mirroring each other and in the way they're reflected back.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think I found it in my bird book. If I am right, it is a Marbled Godwit.
    Beautiful photograph!

    ReplyDelete
  26. It's an awesome photo!
    have a great weekend:)

  27. Couldn't correct you if I wanted to, but can tell you this is a lovely catch. So pretty.

  28. The only thing I can offer, my friend, is a compliment on your image: very nice, especially enlarged to the fullest. :-)

  31. I want to know what they are going to do with the clams once they find them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How far away did you have to be to capture them in a photo? Everytime I get anywhere near enough a bird, it flies off!! Sheesh, like I'm gonna eat it or something. NOT!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wish I could help you but I am brain dead when it comes to the names of plants and animals. That is why I was a 6th grade English teacher. I can tell you this shot is a beauty. The reflections of the “water fowl” are lovely. I like the name Marbled Godwit so hope it is that. Whenever you can capture a two for one or a three of one, you have really hit the jackpot. Guess you are pretty rich tonight. Wonderful shot!

  34. Beautiful reflections and capture

    birds... Godwits for sure.

  37. That's my new nickname for myself. Great shot.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Uhhhh...birds with very long
    leg-limbs?
    Nice capture...whatever they are;)
    Have a great weekend Pat!

  39. I don't know bird names worth beans! But, I do know I love watching these guys scurry in the wet sand doing what sea birds do...cute little critters, they are!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nice photo and reflections. I probably would have called them sandpipers, but birds are not my strong suit. I'm just learning. . . .

    ReplyDelete
  41. They are beautiful, great shot!

  45. They look like Sand pipers to me. I think I may have to go back to the beach to investigate. I wish.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sorry, do not know the species but I photographed some of the same at Del Mar last time I was in Ca.

    Your wonderful photo reminds me of that trip and how much I would love to be able to go back again soon.

  52. Their reflections make them look like different birds, squatter, plumper - and then you look up amd see their elegance. Lovely pic!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Their pose, reflections, water, or color tone, all are simply but beautifully represented . This has a soothing effect on me.

  57. Straight-beaked Bent-Leg Beachcomber, no ?

    (sorry)(I have no clue)

    Beautiful photo though, and I hope they are finding plenty of good things to nibble there... I know it's just the perspective, but it does look like one is picking the other one's brains...
