Sooty Oystercatchers are comical looking water birds with bright red eye rings, long red bills and bright pink legs. A pair were swimming in the ocean in the corner of the beach, literally chasing the waves out, plunging underneath as the new waves raced to the shore, then running back to shore with wavelets chasing them, a game I have watched countless children play.

    Wonderful shot–they really do look like cartoon characters.
