    These critters were all over the rocks this morning in Delaware. Between swimmers and baskers, i'll bet i saw 40 in 10 minutes.

    It's rare when the wind is offshore around sunset but twice this past week it has been so I had the opportunity to mess around in the shorebreak. Easter Sunday was exceptionally beautiful and the reflection of the background colors on the curl of the wave in the 2nd picture was pretty neat too.

    I was just sitting on my screened patio on my lunch break and this little fella came by to say hello. He let me get really close before he took off. He was looking me right in the eye as I spoke squirrel to him. He seems to understand lol

    "Middle Beach" located on Homer Spit, AK. Thought Homer had enough fetch to confirm rumors of surf but Alas, here's the proof. It *is* a pretty cool place, though.

    The "bay" side of the Spit, which is also a big marina. It's called "Land's End" because it's the terminus for the North American highway system.

    Homer Spit lighthouse. Below and behind is the world famous Salty Dawg Saloon, kind of an Alaskan version of Hussong's Cantina in Baja.

    ...and last but not least, pictures of "trophies" to prove the Human Virus theory. There are dozens and dozens of every type of genus hanging from just about every wall in Alaska. I think the only place I didn't see a stuffed animal may have been the Kenai McDonald's, but don't hold me to that.

    I was on an extremely crowded beach yesterday afternoon trying to shoot surfing while dodging kids slinging sand and water and people throwing balls when this guy came along looking for a meal in the surf. Pretty stoked on this shot. I feel its the best bird picture I've gotten yet. I did very little to this shot other than crop it.

    Ospreys are very active around here from mid March to mid Sept. The male will arrive early and begin building the nest. The female arrives a little latter.
    I enjoy seeing them swoop down, hit the water nearby and come up with a fish. For their size, they are equipped with very respectable talons.
    We've also been seeing more bald eagles in our area.

    I haven't yet tried this but may do so now that bug season is practically here.
    ...But I won't sit outside in my underwear.
