Earlier this summer research was done to find out more about how these ions spin their soothing sensations to calm and relax us. Click here to read about it if you are so inclined. The above shot is believed to be a Louisiana heron.
Recently a whirlwind trip found us again on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, again in South Carolina but this time a little farther south in Hilton Head. The above shot is believed to be a snowy egret.
