Soulful Tandem

I'm absolutely crazy about birds.  Eagles, ravens, hawks, heron, ducks, owls, woodpeckers, sparrows, chickadees. You name it - if it has wings, I'm fascinated.  I'm blessed to live on an island teeming with these beautiful creatures and at times I get lost in watching them in my yard feeders - to the point where my son started calling me "the crazy bird lady who lives on the corner."  Could be worse ways to spend one's time, yes?

I captured this lovely pair of seagulls on a blustery winter's day down at Possession Beach.  While I struggled to cover myself from the wind, they floated about with ease, in a soulful tandem.
