Pismo Beach, CA
|We were there on Valentine's Day. Lots of folks enjoying the beach.|
We usually take a walk through the Monarch Butterfly Grove
|This visit we saw very few Monarchs.|
|Perhaps due to several eucalyptus trees brought down by recent storms.|
|A male Anna's Hummingbird perched high in a juniper tree.|
|Subtle coloration of a female Oregon Dark-eyed Junco.|
|A male Oregon Dark-eyed Junco perched nearby.|
|A pair of Milkcap Mushrooms force their way to the light.|
|Gray day. Blue roof marks our timeshare.|
|Weak sunlight provides little warmth for this pidgeon.|
|Pier piling encrusted with living mollusks. Seagulls treat
them as food and peck at them between wave swells.
|Snowy Egret forages along the shoreline.|
|It seemed to prance through the shallows.|
|Hmmm, "Go Home Valley!" Which valley?|
|As we were leaving, noticed this young man with his skateboard.|
|He was extremely agile. Leaped atop the wall in a single bound.|
|Each time he leaped, he challenged gravity.|
|Each time, gravity won.|
|I surmised his goal was to flip the board in air,
land on it before it hit the ground.
|Young Seagull effortlessly glides over the shore break.|
