When I was at the beach over Thanksgiving, my husband and I enjoyed a morning of walking on and around Nye Beach. I ran into this very vain seagull there. I love when impromptu photo shoots happen when you least expect it. This is what happened with this guy.
He was pearched on a pole and everytime I got close to him, he would jump to the next pole about 3 feet away. He was completely not scared and he had no desire to fly away. So I just kept walking up to him and he kept jumping back and forth between poles.
I could only take one photo each time he jumped. It was a crap shoot as to what I would get. There was no time to frame the shot or to think at all. I just kept clicking.
The very top shot is the money shot. I love it so very much. But I had to take many, many pictures to get that one shot. But that was more than half of the fun. I loved hanging with this very vain guy and the experience of trying to catch him in flight.
Looking through all of the outtakes was great fun. I’ve posted a few of my favorites. Sometimes the not so perfect pictures are pretty darn great too.
Below is my guy looking oh so very cool. He was still there when I walked away. I don’t think he was ready to end the photo shoot.
