Beach Birding

"The world is grown so bad, that teens make prey where birders dare not perch."

A short comment on the comments to my last post:

Stroll along a Florida beach during spring break toting a DSLR with a telephoto lens and binoculars.
Walk up to a group of teenage cheerleaders hanging out with a few college football players and tell them:
"Looking at Tits and Boobies is fun and all - no doubt - but nothing beats a wild Shag on the beach!"

If they agree, they are from Cornell.
