Another winter adventure I had this holiday was at my local Ocean View Beach. This is the private beach access and trail that I often write about. There was little beach this day, so my walking on the actual sand/rock next to the water was limited.
Before I left, I spotted a Christmas wreath on the driftwood. I walked down the grass area to get a better angle at climbing over the driftwood to get a snapshot. The surf was up so high I wasn’t able to just walk there via an easier route.
To my surprise I was buzzed by several hummingbirds. The house next to the beach had feeders out and they were active in the sun. I forgot all about the damn boring wreath and got these shots of the male and his harem feeding and perching.
After sitting in the sun and enjoying the hummy’s antics, I started up the trail and got these silhouette photos. Test your ability to see the bird from afar. Always have to have one’s eye peeled to catch birds.
