I was at the beach at Biddeford Pool in Southern Maine photographing the shorebird migration. As I slowly set up a shot on a group foraging Sanderlings, they suddenly flushed...

When I moved my eye away from the viewfinder, I saw this Golden Retriever in hot pursuit.

While I love dogs and can appreciate the photo op this one gave me, please, if you have dogs, be careful at the beach because there are some migratory birds (some very small ones) that come through to forage on their way to their destinations and they really need their rest.

    Beautiful, happy dog....a Golden I believe? Wonderful capture, and it is perfect with the tide coming in the background.

    And, yes, you are right. Dogs (including mine) must be kept in check when the birds are migrating!
