Mirrors & Shadows

You know something is going on out there when you can photograph the tiny baitfish leaping out of the water, from the beach
Snapper’s favorite breakfast: You know something is going on out there when you can photograph the tiny baitfish leaping out of the water, from the beach.

If you’re heading to the beach this morning, might I suggest you wear your birthday suit and a pair of sunglasses. It is still, hot, and bright. The sea is a spectacular mirror and the wildlife is buzzing. Small blitzes are forming and the low tide is thick with the Snappers’ favorite treats.  The Terns are gathering on the beach in anticipation of a long day of blitzing, and birds are stalking the break, creating these small blitzes, trying to get the action going. Visible bunker pods are hanging a little farther offshore than usual. The Dolphin are absent from the scene, but expect them to show in larger numbers in the later morning as they’ve been doing recently.

These conditions won’t last long as a South/Southeast wind is expected to kick on around 10 AM and remain with us for the day. Let’s see what kind of surprises a Southeast wind brings us today.
