And today, some more images from Chincoteague, beginning with the ever present island ponies. This is just one of several dozen images, the others of which are no doubt going to show up in works over the next six months.
One of my sharp eyed friends, spotted a small group of quail in some tall grasses just beside the road and we were able to quickly get several good images before the little band disappeared into the shadows. Good timing, in the right place at the right time!
I have tentatively identified these little guys as sanderlings. There were small groups of them all along the shore line, darting back and forth into the foam of the breaking waves and making for some good reference material for future works as well.
