I've had just enough time... to be thankful to the plovers who stole from me
Taken of the pair of plovers that stole away my worries in a private beach in Hua Hin, Thailand
Walking alone on the wind swept beach
Pounded by roaring waves
It was no lullaby
Peace was not in my heart
Or in my mind
They will make very quick darts across the sand that looks quick comical
While I was not looking
The plovers darted in
Snatched away my worries
In a big hurry
Then stopped dead still. They may face away from each other.
My head felt strangely light
I left the beach with a smile
For the plovers
That stole from my mind
Or facing the same direction
If you didn't follow them with your eyes, it takes you quite a while to look for them when they are not moving.
There, they go on their mad dash again :)
Then stopped to be part of the scenery.
See how easy it is to miss them had I not zoomed in with my shots.
They are very interesting to watch. There are two plovers in all these pictures. Did you notice them all?
