Beach Birds

I recently viewed Pixar’s short film ‘Piper’ someone had shared a link for on Facebook.  It’s since been taken down, but it was adorable!  It reminded me of the morning I spent on Tybee Island during sunrise.  I was taking photos when it decided to start raining, not a hard rain, but more like those great big drops that start out looking like the skies would open any minute.  It sent most of the early morning beach walkers back to their houses, but I waited it out and sure enough the clouds broke and the sunshine was warming the beach sand soon enough.

It was just enough rain to smooth the sand and create a few puddles of water.  It was perfect for these beach birds (I don’t know if these are sandpipers or sanderlings) and they enjoyed taking a quick bath and then drying off in the warm sunshine.
