  10. About 6 weeks old. They're already flying out over the water, but not yet "skimming " , just waiting for the parents to feed them.
     
  11. indeed nice light and POV, detail heaven.
     
  12. Nice indeed. The low angle makes the shot.

    thanks guys, the best thing about this colony is you can stand and shoot at eye level because of the height of the dunes. At 66 this adds a lot to the fun factor:) 
     
  14. Love these shots Randy. Great subject and light.
