A Look Back—Blue Parrot

Photograph of a blue parrotBlues In The Park is a longtime Seaside tradition. Blues concerts take place in Laguna Grande Park on Sunday afternoons during several weeks in the summer. At one of these events, a gentleman brought several parrots that he shared with other attendees. He placed them on outstretched hands or shoulders. The birds delighted children and adults. I liked the detail in the feathers on this particular shot. August 14, 2005.

Waves and Birds –Pelicans In Flight

Photograph of three pelicans flying in front of a large wave at Asilomar, CaliforniaGroupings of three often make for good composition. I wanted to capture the pelicans against the wave, but I didn’t see how many there were until I reviewed my images later.

Waves and Birds — Crying Sea Gull

Photograph of a sea gull in front of a large wave at Asilomar, California

Although there have been few winter storms in California this year, occasionally high surf is generated by winds far out to sea. Several weeks ago I saw a high surf advisory and traveled to Asilomar beach, an area south of Pacific Grove, to try and capture some waves. There seemed to be as many interesting birds as waves, so I will post a few pictures over the next several days.

Moss Landing Wildlife–Sunset

Photograph of a sunset at Moss Landing HarborThe shadows were deepening and the sky briefly filled with warm yellows and oranges as the sun set. I liked the silhouette of the lone bird against the sky. December 15, 2011.
