Artist'sComments: "Turnstones are named for their habit of turning over stones and other debris along the ocean's shoreline as they search for food. They've been clocked at 25 - 35 mph, and fly far north to the Arctic to nest and raise their young. I happened to be standing on a beach at Fort De Soto State Park in Florida when I saw these three individuals fly past."
