I love finding new birds to photograph but I also love photographing the common ordinary Silver Gull, with it's hot chip stealing reputation! I'm not sure what it is but these birds are quite the characters... and there were no hot chips in sight this warm Winter's day. Keep an eye on the one on the left... he/she is quite a character...
"Ah, that lady with the stalker lens is following us. Let's move..."
"I think we out ran her..."
"No, you guys! She's still coming!"
"Maybe I'll be safe over here?"
"Hmm... maybe if I ignore her, she'll go away?"
"I'm not sure this is working! What if I tip toe quietly?"
"Nope!! OK, lady...Got any chips?? Hmmm... didn't think so!!"
