Day 6 - Sea Birds

Sea birds bobbing on stormy waters.
Suddenly they take flight,
their little wings working as if 
their lives depended on it.
Which it probably does.

With such a rough sea, I would say so! I like the photos in b&w.

Especially the young ones - they fly like eggbeaters.

Beautiful! I always have noticed the fragility of birds. Love your note of contrast between them and the sea. Funny coincidence, I wrote about birds for my first small stone. Have a wonderful weekend!!

I often wonder at how such seemingly fragile creatures can fling themselves aloft and ride the currents. Is it as thrilling for them as it is for us to watch them?

Beautiful Inger...I can imagine the sound of those beating wings.

The beating wings do sound desperate at times! Very descriptive!
