Straddling the Border
Gulls and terns straddling the state line (Virginia on the left, North Carolina on the right).
Apparently, some mustangs like standing at the water's edge watching the waves roll in to the beach.
This is a pattern I found while walking along the sand dunes at Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge.
