Daughter Jennifer was kind enough to go down by the lake and show you all the trouble we go through to get pictures of the gulls. Notice how hard she works sneaking up on them. (Clickable picture)

Ha! Ha! LOL, Happy. You have them trained. Do they sit on your shoulders, too?

Wish I could even get within 50 feet of the birds on the feeders. In fact, if they see or hear me, they are gone.

If it were me they would not sit on my shoulders but more likely add an h to that word and that is what they would do on my shoulders. They are fun birds to shoot, glad they are cooperating for you.

They don't sit on our shoulders, but a couple of the bolder ones were hovering right in the daughter's face, and one snatched bread from her hand. Of course when I wanted a picture she held bread out 'til her arm got tired and they would have nothing to do with her. I was miles from our local beach once and a couple of gulls there grabbed my gloved fingers instead of bread.

Sometimes the lake is rather photogenic also. Click to see larger sizes if desired.
