THE STORY

Another pleasant day in the warmth of summer lured me to Omaha Beach on the Matakana Coast. Looking for Oyster Catchers, New Zealand Dotterels, shells, wave colors, and anything of interest to photograph for painting.    New Zealand Dotterel Omaha

The sound of the ocean’s gentle swell caressing the shore, the smell of salt in the air, and the crunch of discarded shells crushed underfoot to become the next generation of sand were all part of the wonder for me that day.

It wasn’t long before the culmination of my search was rewarded. Sunshine, tufts of grass, broken shells, and lots of dotterels basking in the sunshine.

All I had to do was lie on the ground with my camera, a 200mm lens, and watch. A good dose of patience was also required.

I followed two scurrying across the top of a shell ridge, another in flight, and then, to my right, a couple of Oyster Catchers preening on rocks and then leaping down to the sand for more preening. I was privileged to be part of that moment and here you are privileged to enjoy this image from that day. It was such a simple pleasure that I have nothing more to say.

It’s Place

You can tell this story in London or Paris and Beijing or Sydney. Even Oprah Winfrey, Jessie Duplantis, Donald Trump, or maybe even your spiteful neighbor might enjoy its simple story. No matter what political, religious, or philosophical boundary in our culture makes our hearts sing, we all get to play our songs on a planet under the watchful eye of its maker in heaven. New Zealand Dotterel Omaha

If we are too busy to enjoy these simple delights before our eyes and share them, even with our enemies, then we are too busy and perhaps fear is stopping us from living heaven on earth. Ask Jesus.

He knows very well how fear drove us to kill him and then to lie to cover our secrets. This little Dotterel has no idea how twisted human thinking is, but it runs for protection because it has inner knowledge. He can’t trust most of us to look after him, so he can enjoy the sunshine on his beautiful chest.
