Sea Gull @ Hell's Gate

Here is another photo taken at Hell's Gate in Astoria. The sea gull in this photo is used to having humans around it. It shifted its body a few times to show some discomfort but at no time did it try to fly away as I approached it with my camera. In fact, after shooting a half dozen or so frames, I walked by it and the bird completely ignored me.

I was quite offended!! Apparently, this human isn't threatening enough.

Hello there! I saw your comment on Paris Daily Photo and was wondering exactly were the dates of the wedding in Paris. I might be able to find you a cheaper air fare.

Oh Ming, you'll be flying to Paris on the back of a seagull? Mmmmm, getting tired, don't know what I'm saying!

Gaviota is the spanish name for sea-gull. It's pretty

With that beak he can afford to be a little relaxed.

Gulls are just aquatic pigeons!
