    Love the photos! I’ve always got a kick out of watching birds doing their stuff. They don’t seem to care what others’ think, just go about their business.

    Lessons learned today? Coffee early in the morning is a requirement for good thought! Nothing new of course.

    I learned a little more about your sense of humor.

    Great shots. I especially love the one of the birds in flight (is that an island?).

    My lessons for today? When your head hurts and your throat is sore, stay home from work, curl up on the couch with the cats, and visit great blogs like yours. P.S. thanks for the guest post spot. It was fun! If I go somewhere cool again, I’ll let you know. :)

    UP – Your Vancouver Island trip looked to die for. Just the food alone.

    Lisa, I have to admit I couldn’t stop laughing at your story. Great photos too.

    @ Kevin Thanks. I can definitely relate to the need for morning coffee. Mine is brewing right now.

    @ D. Travis North Thank you. It’s not an island, but kind of a sand barge. I took this shot at Malibu Lagoon State Beach. There are actually two such barges; this one and another one which was dominated by pelicans. More on that in an upcoming post.

    @ Urban Panther I hope you feel better soon. I hate not feeling well, but spending time catching up on blogs is a great way to spend your time………….:)

    I love having you guest blog. You’re welcome anytime.

    @ David Thanks. It fun to be able to start the morning with a little laughter………:)

    @ Diane C. Thank you. I just loved the look of this fence post. It was almost screaming at me to take a few shoots.

    @ Paisley Thank you, and I’m glad it hit a funny spot for you.

    @ Lance Thanks. Maybe rust is the new black……….:)
