Today’s post is simply a fun series of images of Black Turnstones (a shorebird that we commonly have here on Tomales Bay) taking a bath. I captured these photographs from my kayak on a grey and foggy day.I don’t know that here images need many words to go with them, so for today… just enjoy the show

I never tire of watching our feather friends bath!
They just seem to have so much fun doing it. So zestful and full of life
wow. such dynamic shots
Thanks Vanessa. I owe it all to the models themselves. Without the Black Turnstones, none of these photos would have been possible
I am drawn to water – river, oceans, lakes and ponds – wherever I go, but usually find myself next to – rarely on or in the water. You are lucky to be able to get close to nature from the water. Beautiful pictures!
I don’t know what I would do without water to play on. It is so much a part of my life that it would be hard for me to ever live for any period of time in a place where I couldn’t be out on it. So happy that you enjoyed my photos
What a great series of photos! I enjoyed looking at your blog and website. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment – I would not have known about your photography otherwise.
The post about taking pictures in a kayak was very good also. I would agree with you that with some practice, it is doable without hurting your equipment. You certainly couldn’t hurt it any worse than a me tripping on a step at the botanical garden yesterday and falling on my camera. I had no idea that Canon cameras & lenses were so durable! It’s scratched to pieces, but nothing was damaged.
The key to kayak photography is practice and care… and not to rush. It is when folks rush that things get dropped (but luckily Canon cameras and lenses are very durable too. Mine have been through hell on a and off the kayak.) I always like exploring other peoples photographs, and you had some nice ones that caught my eye. I wouldn’t have commented if there wasn’t something worth commenting about. But thank you for taking the time to check out my photos too- it’s through sharing that photographs can be appreciated
