…morning light is magic…

Get Off My Head!!

These lazy, or smart, laughing gulls were standing on the brown pelican heads when they came up from catching fish.  They would then reach down and grab a fish.  Gutsy little critters.

    • Thanks Newton. Appreciate your comment. However, since I’m one of the workshop leaders, I don’t enter the photo contest anymore.

    • Thanks Donna. Saw several gulls doing it so it must be easy pickings for them.
