I have no idea about what causes this much red on a cold January morning. Looks a little low on the left. This faded away very quickly. My thinking is slow on a cold January am or I may have taken a few more exposures. TG
Green Violet swallows are not that common. This is the first I have seen . Tree swallows, barn swallows and purple martins have a more simple colour scheme. These are white breasted not yellow. That colour is a reflection from grasses below.
Notice the intricate design of this salt water two inch fingerling. The fine pattern along the back, and the sunny yellow upstrikes over dotted sides. He was caught in the rocks on a falling tide. Birds usually make these stranded fish vanish before 10 AM.
This older racoon seems to be doing well considering his vision is impaired. He was shuffling along the beach in morning light. Finding and eating crab no doubt. Most racoons work at night but this fellow is on day shift due to poor night vision. TG
