Take to the skies


In the end, it's just a seagull. Or is it?

(Yeah, I'm feeling photographic this week. I'm raiding the archives and tossing some of my faves online. Hope you don't mind.)

I know that they're scavengers, but seagulls are still one of my favorite animals

Great picture. Were you standing atop the dumpster?

Could be Jonathan Livingstone seagull?

Thanks for the visit, Carmi. I am awed by the photos from space and humbled too. Also, when I think about how huge many of these galaxies are (some are many light years across) I feel so very insignificant in the universe. The first time I saw the ocean I felt this way, too. But this is a whole new ballgame, isn't it?

haha to prego, and i'll pass on the bird thing. Birds freak me out, I just don't like em'!

I always think of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" when I see them or hear them. We have a trio that wander in on trash day and then they're off to some other neighborhood for the rest of the week (probably hitting each neighborhood on THEIR trash day!).

Seagulls are the lobsters of the skies.

Also, I once took a picture of a pidgeon that would put that seagull to shame. Don't know where I put it, though.

And why are these comments so... restrictive? No avatars, comment moderation...

Are you hiding from someone... or someTHING?!?

Wow Carmi, what a great shot! The seagull yes, but also the gorgeous sky!

That's beautiful. I saw a group of birds on Tuesday, it was as though they were trying to get into formation, but the sky was gray & it was a bit windy. I could have watched them for the longest time.

I love seagulls or gooney birds as I like to call them

Oreo said...

Nice photo. I'm another one reminded of one of my favorite books, Jonathan Livingston Seagull. (Which I thing you'd enjoy from reading your profile.) ... Following you back from the comment you left on Blogger Biggest Loser. (Thanks.)

No wonder that is a favorite. That is a once in a lifetime photo op right there! It's wonderful!

Carmi: Awesome. Reminds me of Boeing's plans for a 787 Dreamliner.
