The beaches of the Outer Banks in North Carolina are full of ghost crabs. These small crabs dig holes in the sand and roam the beaches looking for just about anything to eat.
Animal tracks always catch my attention but they aren’t always very photogenic. These bird prints were on a beach along the James River. It would be impossible to identify the type of bird that left them but the deeper, wider prints in the foreground indicate the bird landed here and then hopped along the beach before taking flight. The early morning sun provided enough shade within the prints to make them stand out in the photo.
