Back Off, Bird

On my walk back from the fortress (yes, all these posts are about my two hour outing on Sunday, because you would less than thrilled to see photos of the conference rooms I've been inhabiting for the last three days), I stopped on a park bench to eat a baguette.

Two fat seagulls immediately stalked over and took places at my feet, looking expectantly. I was hungry and unwilling to share.

They stared at me. I stared back. I at my bread. They stared some more.

Finally, for the last bite, I got camera ready and threw a little piece. Pounce!

It makes me glad I'm not small enough to be their prey. Do you remember the seagulls from Finding Nemo? Mine, mine, mine!

Waiting with a longing look and with patience usually gets some reward.

I have a photo of my college roommate chasing some seagulls with a stick after they stole her sandwich on a beach picnic. They can be totally aggressive in the face of food, that's for sure.
