Nice pict though!

Looks like he's singing an aria in the top shot. And as if he's accepting a warm ovation in the second. I know you said it's a different bird but ...

I picture them more as husband and wife.

And I picture them as food traffic and safety controllers.

Oh boy, these are just superb shots, VP! The first one is priceless...perfect timing...I don't think I've ever seen such a shot...

Gulls are rather regal scavengers!

I can hear the call in that first photo. Very nice shot!

@ brattcat - I'm not sure the bird is a different one, probably he's following me...

I love gulls. It's only inconvenient if something lands on you or your car, but I love to look at them! These are great gull photos. With the mouth open, that's hard to get. Good job!

Jackie said...

We get them here too, they're real thugs!

I've snapped many a gull picture but never one of it talking. Well done.
