Dorann, allow me to introduce your lovely seagull to one of mine...
I think your pastel sky-and-clouds background is far prettier than the surroundings in mine.
Beautiful capture! #6478600

Nice to meet your seagull too..I see they have the same culinary taste!.. Thank you for your wonderful comment Mary! #6478899

Dorann, I forgot to mention how attractive its black features (tail feathers, legs and feet, beak) are. The gulls in California - at least, those I've seen - don't have such striking details. #6478920

What a beautiful Gull portrait, Dorann. Wonderful light, colors and details. #6480004

Mary isn't it funny how different critter's can be demographically..? #6480595

Dorann, all I can think is, "Maybe it's the water!" :) #6482353
