Willet at St Pete Beach

The Willet always catches my eye.
We don't see the Willet at St Pete Beach in the summer when we are there.
But we seem to always see them in the fall and winter.
The top 4 photos were October 2008, the last was taken February 2008.
This last photo of the Willet was taken with my point and shoot. I was very pleased to capture this. The Willet is a fast runner along the beach, so I was very happy to get him with something in his mouth. The other photos were taken with my Canon D-SLR. Teresa has this last photograph framed in her home, in the room she has decorated with shells.

We will be at Aruba today,

hopefully seeing a beautiful beach we have never experienced before.
