Natures Waves

I was buried in some large rocks atop the sea wall to keep from spooking the large amount of shorebirds that were all around me. Lucky for me most of them were situated down sun from me which gave them good light as the golden hour waited patiently for its appearance.
The tide was coming in when I first arrived and carefully crawled up into position. I was there thru slack tide, then enjoyed watching the tide move out. In my head, one of the oldest songs of my memory 'Sitting on the dock of the bay' "🎶🎵 watching the tide roll away..." was going thru my head.

In the flock were Semipalmated Sandpipers, with a few Semipalmated Plovers thrown into the mix. I was observing one possible candidate for a Western Sandpiper, but have not yet been able to confirm. It is redder that all the others, but not in the way I typically see them.
The entire mass of birds took off and flew all around the area multiple times after being flushed by someone who didn’t stop when I politely asked them not to come closer. They were shocked at what popped up seemingly out of nowhere, as the birds blended in so well. Profusely apologizing, I said no worries, as I was granted with all sorts of great BIF opportunities.
This is my favorite of the many flight shots I captured. Catching the curl of a wave as they flew by made this image stand out to me.
