  • Wings


    You know I think the common Seagull is hard to beat for beauty and grace, I love their soft colours and the way they fly like a Concorde.

    Nice capture.

    Not surprisingly a different flavour of gull to that found around our parts.

    I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.

      Thanks Hec ... actually when its wings are raised in the upward beat you can see the RAAF Rondel with flying kangaroo on the underside ... trust me

        I guess when you've downed a few Castlemaine XXXX Gold, you can see almost anything you choose to see, Mark!

        Lovely shot, by the way - great colour and detail.

                Ah, the E3 at work again.
                I cannot share your admiration of these birds - one once took a whole meat pie out of my hand and it has coloured my view of them forever. Even your shot depicts that sneaky look!

                  So now you're scarred for life? You should've hung on to your pie better.

                  Sorry, I shouldn't jest as I would probably hold a similar grudge too.

                    At least it wasn't a proper pie. Not a Yorkshire Pork Pie. Then I would be peeved!

                      Once on a cold rainy morning at Cradle Mountain as Sandra and I were preparing to set out on a 5 day walk to Lake StClair, a great big Currawong swooped and snatched an inch thick steak from my sandwich leaving me clutching a couple of slices of juice stained bread!

                      All the most vulgar expletives to make a crow blush were uttered in that moment of outrage! ! !
