Baby Birds and Thunderstorms

It seemed like such a nice day to photograph those skimmer babies, now beginning to make a less timid appearance. But things turned grim pretty quickly...

The babies are so different from their black and white parents!



Of course, they targeted me immediately. So I left. But I got some photos first!



Meanwhile, back at the picnic tables...

Something seems to be brewing to the north...





It got very dark, very quickly...




Cecil B. DeMille dark.

We made it across the parking lot to the car just before the rain started. But I wonder what those little birds do in the rain...sometimes the beach floods.
