The Gull


The Gull


a young gull standing atop a pointed rock



This young Sea Gull was hanging around where the boys were fishing out on the breaker wall.

His eyeball wasn't on us as much as it was on the bait fish the boys were using.

If they hadn't kept it under cover, I think he would have made short order of it.

I was amazed at how well he kept his balance on that pointed rock with those webbed feet.

This is a first season gull - by next summer he will be the beautiful white and gray colors of an adult sea gull.

  1. Perhaps he's so focused on the fish bait that he's not even aware he's standing on the pointy rock.

  2. I'm going to try some of those feet as they might keep me up after a shandy or two....

  6. That is one scraggly looking gull, but I guess that is as a result of his youthfulness
