Taking a Break

I was spending the 4th of July in Gustavus with family. My wives great grandparent homesteaded in Gustavus, it is a wonderful place to spend the holiday. There is a small parade that you get to see twice, and everyone in town gathers together. It is like a giant picnic, complete with games for all ages. The parade was over and I was walking down to beach when I stopped to take pictures of the Lupine with the Fairweather Mountains in the background. As I was squat down to take the picture the birds start flying everywhere. They were chasing insects and landing on the Lupine. The next 30 minute was just spent watching them do their dance.
