Baylands

Baylands


On Sunday D. and I visited the Baylands, and here are some of the pics I took.


A view of the salt marsh at the edge of San Francisco Bay.





It's high tide.





A Pilatus plane approaches nearby Palo Alto Airport to land.





A golden-crowned sparrow perches in a gumplant in search of insects to eat.





Sage seed heads are like abstract sculptures.





A couple of views of Mayfield Slough.







A turkey vulture soars overhead.





Saltbush leaves catch the late afternoon sunlight.





Saltbush flowers are brilliant crimson.





Two more small planes come in to land at the airport, a Quest Kodiak and a Cessna Skyhawk.







Black-necked stilts and gulls hang out in the slough.
