What a great ledge to rest on---terrific photo.

The image is enthraling. A beautiful capture that reveals so much more when you really look at it. Well done.

Definitely well camouflaged!

You are right...there are birds there...but they are well hidden in those rocks. Sometimes the evolutionary process works pretty darn well!

Beautiful photo!

What a life. I can only look upon those birds with envy! Love all the swirling energy in this photo.

Beautiful shot!
I wouldn't have seen the birds if I had been trying to interpret your title. :)

You had me looking very hard to figure out what I was seeing.

A great week of photos JM! The water is beautiful and yes, those birds are hard to see. That must have been an interesting shot to take given the perspective. Cheers!

Mesmerizing waves and steady birds I would not have noticed till one moved. You must have taken this from a cliff at Cascais.

Pat Ulrich said...

Wonderful capture -- they really do blend in well! Looks like they're waiting for the tide to ebb.

On s'émerveille devant l'écume avant de les voir. Superbe camouflage

Arija said...

Great shot, they almost are invisible.

Well hidden is right. Neat! MB
