Of Cats and Gulls

Technically a poor photo, but I like this gull flying toward the sun.For a one-legged bird he seems quite at ease and even smug.One year later, the King of the Harbour is still on his rocky throne.

I wouldn't say it's technically poor photo, first of all - for me is superb, and the King of the Harbour is terrific!!!!

Love the King!

Technically poor? Not! A beautiful shot, actually! Like the gull, too, but the kitty is my favorite...he's been around a long time. Wonder who it belongs to?

James said...

That middle gull has great balance. I wonder if he's a victim of the king? :)

Well the King is still looking smug. Ahhh, the good life.

I like your Gull into the Sun photo. What do you mean 'technical'? Just take what you like and that is what says it is good. MB

I love them all. What fun.

The King's photo this year makes him look more alert than the one last year when he looks much too relaxed. What a "character" to have hanging around!!

Gunn said...

Nice photos, and the KING is beautiful!

Each is full of personality and wonderful in his own way.

It will be a sad day when we no longer see the King of the Harbour on his throne. I hope you remember to take a picture of him every year.

I'm glad you posted the first photo. I love that his face is turned toward the sun too.

You'd think that gulls were a little too wide-bodied to stand on one leg. That made me smile.

I think the first shot is great! I like the title too.

The King of the Harbor is my favorite. Great catch of the local "wildlife"!

Lois said...

All of the pictures are so cute! I love it when birds stand on one foot like that--as if to say I can do this for hours and you can't!

Rob and Mandy said...

Oh yes, the King indeed! What a majestic pose!

I like its camouflage! ;-)

I wish all my photos were that technically bad.

How DO birds stand on one leg? Their balance is so much better than mine! LOVE that kitty. It is a survivor.

Beautiful shot of the one-legged gull!

Hello there King!

I love the flying gull. We have one near the office who is always in the dumpster eating trash & making a general mess.
