Well there I was, photographing Sanderlings along the shore at Bank Street Beach.
When I spotted something ahead on the jetty that was definitely larger than a bird.
I tried to get different angles, different views, as he turned, this way and then that…
Somehow, by his eyes and demeanor, I could tell he knew I was not a threat.
That I meant him no harm, which could not have been more true.
And when he “waved” at me, well…
The following day I was relieved to hear from IFAW that this appeared to be an individual that was doing well.
In fact, he’d been spotted again, in Hyannis, looking healthy.
Once I knew that, I could relax, and enjoy the sheer Beauty of this amazing sea mammal who happened to cross my path.
