Phalaropes at the end of the rainbow

With my computer mostly fixed I can finally edit rainbow pics from a few weeks ago.

It was a pretty blustery day, spray went twice as high as the lighthouse at times.
The sun came out, usually the wave crash pics here are with bigtime overcast skies.

And the long-awaited payoff, a Red-necked phalarope that spent a few minutes on the beach (once the light turned awful again).  Tim had a Red recently at Tiscornia, pretty close to the same time period we had Red Phalaropes off-shore last year.
You can get a sense from its posture that it was getting blown about pretty hard by the wind, in the end it was basically blown away.
