A Beach, A Bird, and A Challenge

Dana, Stone Rabbit, presented me with a photo challenge a couple of weeks ago. If you haven't seen her post for the photo challenge, do take a look at it. It's just really sweet!

The challenge is this:

Go to your photo files...

Select the 6th photo folder...

Select the 6th photo in that folder...

Post that photo along with the story behind it.

Then challenge 6 blog friends to do the same!

My photo was taken on a Florida beach in June 2008. I adore anything beach and I find the sea birds absolutely mesmerizing. I take lots of pictures when I'm at the beach so I can look back at them during those cold, snowy Michigan winters! Either this bird or I was in just the right place at the right time, because the camera captured him perfectly mid flight with the blue sea behind him. I love the detail you can see in the picture - the orange beak and legs, the black wing tips, the white surf rolling in over the sand. Yep, this is one of my favorite ever beach pics!

Now for the next six bloggers to participate in the photo challenge:
