Artist's Comments"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."
