Birds.Sorry, that's all I know! Cool photo.
Amazing!!! This is something that would look great blown up and hanging in a house.
what a simple but beautiful picture
That is a beautiful picture.
don't know what they are, but the look nice!
Wonderful photo. Greetings.
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!
don't know what they are but it's a serene beach picture in light of all the tsunami news that we're hearing this morning.LeeTossing It Out
I really like this shot and, yes, it would be stunning blown up.
I love their long legs and how they can still bend to reach the water.
Alex - Me too! thanks!Sarah - thanks Sarah! They posed for me.becca - Nothing special, I just liked the way the were standing there.Oilfield Trash - Thanks so much!baygirl - That makes two of us! Thanks...Japy - Thanks so much!Bossy Betty - That's funny! Probably true also... Thanks!Arlee - Thanks! Yes, much bad news. We're getting some reports from my wife's family (she's Japanese).
some kind of bird with a very long beak. but I love the photo. have a great weekend Pat!
I have no idea, but I do love your capture, Pat! What perfect reflections and such cute, hungry little buggers they are. I love it! Hope you -- and them, have a fun weekend!Sylvia
MacDougal - thanks so much! gotta love seabirds!EG Wow - They are pretty interesting to watch. thanks!Miss Becky - That's all I know! thanks, you have a good weekend also...
Awww, how lovely - and who cares what they are named? They never answer to it when called, anyway!
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. :)
Gorgeous photo, Pat. Have a great weekend.
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...
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!
That's a beautiful snack time! Oh, for them...not me!
i just saw some birds like this for the first time yesterday and took pictures of them ^_^
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...
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,Genie
A double-double reflection! lovely!
There's something tender in the way they're mirroring each other and in the way they're reflected back.
I think I found it in my bird book. If I am right, it is a Marbled Godwit.Beautiful photograph!
It's an awesome photo!have a great weekend:)j.
Couldn't correct you if I wanted to, but can tell you this is a lovely catch. So pretty.
The only thing I can offer, my friend, is a compliment on your image: very nice, especially enlarged to the fullest. :-)
Love the reflection- great shot! Have a good weekend Pat.
how fragile they look. please have a good weekend.daily athens
I want to know what they are going to do with the clams once they find them.
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!
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!
Cool photo! :-)
Beautiful reflections and captureHappy weekend. R e g i n a
I find it amazing how deep they can go with those long slender bills.
Great capture.. reflection and thebirds... Godwits for sure.
That's my new nickname for myself. Great shot.
Uhhhh...birds with very long leg-limbs?Nice capture...whatever they are;)Have a great weekend Pat!
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!
Nice photo and reflections. I probably would have called them sandpipers, but birds are not my strong suit. I'm just learning. . . .
They are beautiful, great shot!Léia - Bonjour Luxembourg
Not a bird expert I'm afraid - but good shot!
Pat, thank you for your concern.Two birds and reflections look like delicate and fragile artworks! Beautiful shots.
Beautiful reflections Patrick.Have a great weekend.Costas
They look like Sand pipers to me. I think I may have to go back to the beach to investigate. I wish.
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.
We see Marbled Godwit's hanging around here in the summer.
Hi Pat .. the photo is brilliant .. marbled Godwith .. I hope all is well with your family in Japan .. with thoughts - Hilary
How serene. :)
I deeply thank for your warm heart and thoughts... From Japan, ruma
I like that photo
That's beautiful. It's as if they were posing just for you.xoRobyn
Sometimes you just piss me off! LOLGreat pics as always!!!!J
Their reflections make them look like different birds, squatter, plumper - and then you look up amd see their elegance. Lovely pic!
Their pose, reflections, water, or color tone, all are simply but beautifully represented . This has a soothing effect on me.
Wow!Exquisite!!Love it!Happy Sunday!Betty
...and hey Pat, I've proudly added your lovely blog to my Blog Roll!Betty
This is such a beautiful image! Great capture.
A delicate and lovely capture...a photo frame....
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...
This is such a beautiful image to see, Pat!
