Thanks, Carol! I got lucky with this one. When I was trying to photograph the terns, a very large flock of godwits flew by very close to me...and one of the pictures came out in focus!

Your very own M. C. Escher!

So...which Escher do you think is the closest match?

What a great Escher website--did not realize he had done SO many of them. I think Bird/Fish #22 was the one I saw in my mind's eye, because of the shape of the wings (but, of course, you have no fish . . .)
I just love the ones that have their wings up and the ones that have their wings down, making the most beautiful rhythm; and all those pink bills in parallel. An amazing photo.
Again--thank you for your wonderful posts!
