Sharing moments in time…

Torrey Pines State Reserve


There’s been a report of a burrowing owl at the Torrey Pines Reserve near San Diego so I thought I’d go look for the little guy.  Needless to say, he wasn’t home while I was there.  In any case, I walked around the reserve for a while and took a few pics that I thought I’d post.  The first one is my first shot of a peregrine falcon.  The first time I saw him he did one of his signature dives but I was unable to capture it.  The only other time I saw him, he was just cruising the cliffs – a graceful flier nonetheless….

Frequent Flier

The next little fella was sitting there defacing the flora.  I could’t find a ranger to report him to so I thought I’d capture him for the “lineup” later….

Lastly, as I walked back down to the beach, I was glad to see that the lifeguard was still on duty…

Ever vigilant
