ambitious seagull

Ambitious-Seagull-at-Robert-Moses-Beach-Summer-2011



































this guy was just two feet away from me. every time he walked by he would nonchalantly eyeball the open bag of chips on our blanket. I could see he was calculating the risk involved if he was to just go for it and try and grab a few. he must've circled us fifty times within a space of five minutes. now that is ambitious!

This is the cutest picture I've seen all day.

Love the edging you put on it too.

Hey, we're next-door neighbors at abc! I think I know this bird—and you're having waaay too much fun with that iPhone, my friend! Good one.

The gulls at Robert Moses beach are just as agressive. They wait on the roof of the snack bar to see who comes out with what!

Those seagulls can be sneaky little buggers sometime. Great shot and I love the InstaGram(??) treatment.
