A "ruddy" good bath!!!


Hello all...my computer went awol for a few weeks, so I did some house renovations and re-decorating, created another quilted wall hanging (not birds this time ;-) ..and believe it or not, this week, I finally finished editing all the photos from my Fl. trip. Whew! The photos of this little Ruddy Turnstone taking his morning dip really don't need too many words of explanation...he was a joy to watch as he strolled to the water's edge....I did have to laugh out loud when he put his head completely under tho...enjoy!

How cute that Ruddy is - and yes - so funny to see that bird put his head under the water! Great capture, there Tina :-) Oh, I do believe you when you say you are just finishing up with all those vacation pics. It's the worst part of the trip ;-) But I can't wait to see more!

I too love your new blog look! This little bird was a delight to see and I was ever so surprised to see him put his head under the water. Isn't editing photos a nightmare when you have gone on vacation and bring them all back!! Arrrgh!! I'll be looking for more great captures.

How exciting to be able to watch "the bath." Your pictures really captured the event.

He is a cute one all right. And busy too. Great shots. I saw tons of small shorebirds at D.D. but couldn't identify most. No excuses here. I just need a lot more practice.
