Sea Gulls on a stormy day


Summer Stock Sunday and Pets Pride Meme
Red Billed Gulls catch a free ride on the fishing boats railings during a stormy trip down the Havelock Sounds. Not exactly pets just very grateful friendly birds, riding while others have to wheel and fly in the strong wind. Beaks to the wind everyone, and hold on tightly.
Taken through the front, sea spray covered window.

PS I tried to delete your other link but Mr. Linkie isn't recognizing me as the meme owner so it isn't letting me. Sorry.

Cool shot!
I almost feel like I'm standing there looking out and needing a jacket to ward off the chill. :)

Hi - we've wandered over here from 'Pet Pride' - isn't it a great site?! Lovely photo of the 3 gulls all lined up - they're amazingly large birds up close aren't they? We live by the sea so often chase seagulls - we're secretly glad when they fly away though, he he he! Tail wags - JD and Max.

Wow! You have to wonder how they can even hang on through that! I love to watch birds-they always fascinate!

They say there's no such thing as a free lunch. Maybe they're wrong!

Great photo of the gulls hitching a ride! Looks like a wild one for sure.

Linnea W said...

That's funny! Maybe they think it's like an amusement park ride! Wonderful shot - it does look rather rough out there. I think I'd rather hitch a ride too!

Even if they stay for only a little while they surely can be classed as companions and therefore pets . . . ;-)
