~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #123 ~ Found In the Neighborhood ~

Looking out across 24 acres of dune-meadow-wetland, I am greeted by banks of clouds billowing in from the Pacific Ocean.

Shorebirds were migrating through last week. Several hundred sanderling, plovers and sandpipers, feasted and rested at ebb tide Friday, November 13.

A turbulent ocean coughed up all manner of dismembered jellyfish.

It looks like the four pointed star below, came from a larger jellyfish like the one above.

We set up a hummingbird feeder on our deck and soon had Anna’s visiting on a regular basis. Guess I can say they are our next-door neighbors!

My apologies to Leya and lens-artists for a tardy response. It’s been a wee bit busy in Lindy’s world. Still, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a bit more of my lovely neighborhood at Long Beach, WA ~ USA.

    Jellyfish are utterly fascinating to me.

      It’s always fun to find another sister in the appreciation of and fascination with jellyfish! Sometimes I feature what I’ve photographed on Wordless Wednesday. Mushrooms too!

    Lindy – I am so glad you decided to join in even if you thought it late! Excellent choices, and I love your birds. The shades of grey in number 2 and 3 are divinely caught. Wishing you a lovely week among your birds – and Jello.

    • Lindy Le Coq says:

      Thank you Leya. The shades of grey on 2&3 are an act of nature happening before my very eyes – through the lens of a pretty darn good camera! On rainy days, I usually don’t take my Panasonic Lumix FZ47 on our walks. This morning however, it was clearing enough I dared bring it along. Serendipity! 🐾

    Always better late than never Lindy! Your world looks much like mine. I too love the migrating birds which you’ve captured beautifully. The jellyfish I would happily do without!!
