I’ve mentioned in a previous post that when the weather is nice I sometimes take the boys to the beach in the afternoon. During one of our recent trips there this bird was swimming around followed by a fair number of babies. I have no idea what the birds are, but they do have some rather impressive ‘hair’! I managed to get a picture of one of the babies too, and its fluffy head is ridiculously cute. You’ll have to come back tomorrow to see that one though!
Getting the picture of the mum was pretty difficult actually. She kept diving under the water just as I’d managed to get the camera to focus on her, and reappearing after some time in a completely different place. This picture was the best I could manage. How inconsiderate of her, diving for food instead of posing for pictures. Animals these days… Honestly!
