Not all winter visitors to Florida are people. This is a gull that spends most of his time up north, but in winter he’ll pack his bags and come where it’s warmer.
This one is juvenile. It took me some time to identify him because of his color. Like us, later in his life, he turns gray (and white). I also liked his pink legs and feet. Click on the picture for a better view.
He wasn’t afraid of us, which I found interesting. Most gulls take off if you get within a few feet of them. Well, unless you have fish treats. Then you can’t chase them away:~)
As you can see, he let us get quite close to him and we didn’t have any treats. He interested me because his color and size. He’s a big fellow, compared to the other gulls I usually see on the Gulf of Mexico shores.
I thought this would a fun “what’s the caption” picture. That’s your challenge – write a good caption for this picture. Keep it PG, as always:~)
Hmmm. This may not be a quick question, but I’ll give it to you anyway. What kind of gull do you think this one is? I narrowed it down to a gull that is named after a fish, a northern fish. Let’s see who gets it right first!
Every once in awhile, I want to send kudos out to some people and let you, my readers, know what they’ve been up to.
Jean’s gone to the BIG APPLE. Well, her paintings have. Her abstract paintings are on sale in NYC and online. Just go to here and there are her beautiful abstract pictures. Pretty cool, right? My favorites were Smokey Orange and Pushing Color. Which are your favorites?
Kelvin of Puppet Kaos was very busy in 2012. One of my favorite things he’s done lately is to create a HD puppet video Christmas card on YouTube. I didn’t even know they had high definition on YouTube. Check it out here.
Also, take a moment to visit Patty’s new site, Living Deep Studio. She had a wonderful series, “The Story of 2012,” which provided some excellent writing prompts for reviewing 2012. To view all of this series, go to Patty’s “Archives” and click on December (located on the right side of her site).
Last but not least, check out Liza’s new site. It’s still called 6birds, but the theme has changed. Be sure to move your cursor around. It’s fun. Liza loves to redo her site and she does a good job at it.
If I left someone out who wants a Kudos mention, let me know via my contact box. Just to be clear, this isn’t a spot for advertising services. It’s a chance to give people a “pat on the back” for their accomplishments.
