Willet synchronised bathing

On vacation near Tampa, I got up at dawn and headed to Fort De Soto Park each day to spend some time with the local birds. I watched these willets for a while before they indulged in some vigorous bathing in the Gulf of Mexico. Being from London, UK, this shot reminds me of the synchronised swimming in our Olympics this summer.

Location: Fort De Soto Park, Pinellas County, Florida, USA
