Cheap Model

Yesterday's photo somehow ended up in the unassigned bin, blank except for the photo itself. 

One day at the beach last summer I got 30 or so shots of this gull. It was totally relaxed, turning and posing, seemingly not afraid at all. I returned to my blanket to get it a treat.  When I turned back toward it, it was gone.  I ate the treat.

I am guessing the "treat" was not some mouldy old fish skeleton...

[grin]
maybe it wa son holiday Mary, thats why it wa so relaxed, obviously judging by its eye it was watching you too.
Mary, this fellow certainly gets around. I took his picture at the lake's edge back in the early summer. As he did for you; he posed, preened and hammed it up while I snapped shot after shot.

Love that Island red rock he's standing on.
Mary MacADNski: A gull is so loved and so hated. This is a young one with dapple on his head and so interesting.

Do you come back here?

LOL.. his loss! You'd only encourage them to harrass us humans in any case. A great pose.
At least he stayed long enough to pose!
great catch
they eye is perfect!!
They are beautiful birds Mary..and you caught this one a treat!(sorry for the pun)..Bill wont be pleased though.
Mary MacADNski: Bill has registered his complaint. I love them, like crows, and think they are beautiful.
a great shot, Mary! he certainly looks like he was posing for you smile
Mary MacADNski: He was great and cheap.
Your gull are better educated than mine. And I'm sure will be happier with the photo.
Mary MacADNski: This one is young too. It has a speckled head.
A fine portrait of one of my least favourite birdstongue
Mary MacADNski: Oh, I know. I thought of you when posting it. I'm so sorry. The bird made me do it though.
