What a beautiful photograph! I love to watch sea gulls, and the sky there is so perfectly blue!

It looks like that spot he is aiming for is already taken. They are going to meet by accident.

Great capture! :-)
I tried this once, but those gulls always landed the very moment I did not pay attention. ;-)

Sensible gull, landing at St Francis! I wouldn't mind landing there to for a day or two! I like the photos of the kiewietjies. There is a mother and father (I assume) who greet the dogs and I everyday on the bit of open ground we tarry at during our morning walk. Do they kick up a fuss in the interests of protecting their nest! I feel so bad that we upset them so much. Parenting is a tough job!
