Snowy, Plover (Juvenile doing foot stands)

I went to the west side of Willard Bay this morning. I saw 100 godwits, 16 Black terns (surprise), Forster's Terns, pelicans, stilts, avocets, etc.

On the way back in I was observing and photographing 9 Snowy Plover's (adults and juveniles). All of a sudden, a juvenile ran close, jumped up on a rock and began doing foot stands as if he was trying out for the summer games. He got a little carried away, lost his footing and fell off the rock. He glared at me as if I had caused it, or maybe it was because I laughed. You think I made this up?? I have pictures..it was magic. (Click on SLIDESHOW, upper right.)
