These Guys Move Like Samantha
Remember how Samantha on the old television show Bewitched would wiggle her nose and clean (at super speed) her whole house to spotlessness in about 10 seconds?
When I was a kid, I wished I could do my homework the way Samantha cleaned house. No such luck for me.
That's just how these little guys move in the sand and surf, trying to catch bugs or whatever it is they eat.
The light was getting low, necessitating a fairly slow shutter speed, but these guys don't stop but for a half second at a time. I took a bunch of photos of them and these were my two favorites.
The bird on the right in the second photo is blurry as he shakes his head back and forth, but I like how it blurs in this particular photo while the other bird is still for a split second.
That, and they're cute.
