Can you spot the seal?
The seal was very alert and on the lookout for danger
These small wading birds (Sanderlings) can be spotted feeding along Salisbury Beach with some frequency. With patience you can slowly work your way close enough for photographs. Although they move very quickly, so, using your camera's "sports" setting is recommended.
There was a heavy overcast that day so the photos are on the grayish side.
Of course the Snowy Owls have been making an appearance at Salisbury Beach State Reservation this winter.
With any wildlife photography, it is important to make sure you don't disturb the bird or animal by keeping your distance. If the bird looks upset, bothered, or uncomfortable with your presence than you are too close.
