    ...Well not quite, but we did see quite a few at the beach the other day! I brought my camera with me and snapped away. Many of them were quite willing to pose too! I just loooooove their expressions.

    I love the one of the juvenile peering down at the nut, real neat crashing waves and sunset pics too.

    Why can't it be so easy to get such great pics of the chickens! Those buggers won't stand still for nothing!

    Wow! Those are some beautiful, clear pictures!! You must have a great camera and be good at taking pics [​IMG]
    Here's 2 funny side stories about seagulls:

    STORY 1
    When I was a teenager I went to Ocean City MD with my family. We were watching a lady feeding a ton of seagulls on the beach. Well, either she didn't realize or didn't care, but they were pooping all over her. She had poo all down the back of her shirt and in her hair!!! [​IMG]


    STORY 2
    My MIL and I were taking a ride on the Jamestown Ferry. There were some seagulls around and she said "wow! Look at all those pigeons (sp?). That'd be a cool pet to have, wouldn't it?" I was like, "WHAT!! Those are seagulls!!!" [​IMG] What's even funnier, to me, is that she's from MD where there were always a bunch of seagulls around!

    Thanks everyone! I did get a new camera in July and it is much better than my little sony cybershot, but I've been practicing a lot too.

    Chickeroo,

    My friend got pooped on and she was freaking out. I was just sort of sitting there wondering why, as I get pooped on all the time at home by my chickens! Oh yeah, I was in Ocean City, NJ.

    Nice pics Chickerdoodle, I think seagulls are very pretty birds. Some people don't think so, and are always shooing them away. Where's Ocean City?
