the feathered squad (2)

Meet Guthrie Gull Senior. He's the fastest among the feathered squad. Unlike Junior, he's not much for observing the dishes. Before you can say "medium fries" he'll simply grab a bite and take off.

Great image, with neat background.
For a moment (maybe a bit more) I thought that this bird was a dummy...

Lena Johansson said...

Wonderful! Was there some food on the pink umbrella? Or bellow? This with gulls is not easy but this one put his cap on so we think we know what kind he is...:-)

TACK SÅ MYCKET!

Beautifully caught!!!

B SQUARED said...

They really are thieves and no manners at all.

Halcyon said...

If he'll keep the squirrels out of my yard, send him over!

These guys give fast food a whole new meaning.

Vogon Poet: Nope, very much alive he was.

Lena Johansson: Lots of yummy food underneath... Tack Lena.

cieldequimper: Glad you like it!

B Squared: Amen to that.

Halcyon: He'd take over and run the place - at least that's what he thinks! (The real boss is in fact lurking in the background - we might get to see him one of these days...)

Thanks all for hovering above this restaurant with Guthrie and us.

This shot is so perfect that I at first, just like Vogon Poet, thought it was not real! Fantastic!

Jacob said...

Great colors! Some people don't think gulls will take food out of your hands. They are so gullible!

Per Stromsjo said...

I was lucky with this one. Only got one chance and that is rarely enough in my case.

m_m: Thanks.

Buenos Aires Photoblog: You know what they say, timing is everything.

Alexander: I would have wanted some sunlight as well but maybe this was in fact better?

JM: Gotta go looking for some more birds one of these days.

Jacob: Gullible, indeed! :D

Again, thanks all.
