Avila Seagull

I tried taking some seagull photos on Avila Beach and the pier, and this was my favorite as the bird posed beautifully for me and let me get quite close.
I'm linking this to Camera Critters, a meme I need to join more often, and to the I'd Rather B Birdin' blog too. It's the last of my beach photos from this year.

  9. Avila Beach is a beautiful spot. The only time I've had a seagull pose, was when he wanted part of my lunch. Great shot, and you didn't have to share. - Margy
