I was up at dawn today to photograph the sunrise over the pristine beach at Anastasia State Park. The air was crisp, a little chilly. A brisk walk was the solution for that. Then I found this little guy enjoying a little breakfast on the beach. We spent a good bit of time together before my fingers started getting numb from gripping the penetratingly cold aluminum tripod. I stopped shooting, shoved my hands in my jeans pockets, and let the warm rays of the rising sun warm my face.
