That's a cheesy grin . . .
This leaf was cavorting right along the wave line - and when he noticed me, well . . . . he straightened right up just as high as he could go to check me out! He decided I was not a threat - nor a help - and (unfortunately) ran right into a wave coming from behind as he took off again. Never turn your back on the ocean!
Extra is another wonderful everywhichway wave, courtesy of backwash and a steep beach slope.
