Gulls

Of course, the birds seen most often at the seashore are gulls; and that was true during our beach times in Florida in January. They are all little beggars, staking out a space near any humans that look like they might have food. Since my hubby and I never go anywhere without food, well, we had lots of opportunities to photograph gulls.

This one, tired of waiting for a handout, decided to take a nap.

He does have two legs but seems to prefer using them one at a time.

  6. Beautiful shots Linda, I like to take bread down to them. Locals spot me as a tourist and shake their heads.

  7. Hi Linda! You managed to make those little beggars look so cute! When I go to the beach, they are very bossy and bold. If you even look like you're eating they hang out by our blanket screeching for attention. Yikes. Thank you for helping me see beauty in them :)

  9. Uh-oh, I have some competition! You captured such wonderful details on these gulls. I know they are considered pesky and greedy, but I love them. The one with his face tucked in the wing is super sweet!
