On The Beach Again

The beach changes every day and you never know what you'll see down there... A temporary house of twigs can sprout overnight and last until the next high tide.

The shorebirds take it all in stride. High tide pushes the clumps of seaweed closer together and makes it that much easier for them to gather tasty bugs. The outgoing tide reveals the patches of sand crabs scrambling for cover, trying to avoid becoming the shorebirds' next meal.
