Menowviews - the Less Speak More Peek day

For the next few days my focus is going to be on the recent trip to Dunoon.  To begin, a little series of photos taken of a young herring gull and it's "star" find (you will have spotted it in Sunday's post). It was just strutting along the water rim when suddenly it darted forth and up came the prize!!

Join in the party with the linky at the end.  Have a great week everyone.

After this it flew out to the deeper water and proceeded to play with it - more cat than bird!  Here's the linky...


  1. I kept waiting for him to try to eat it, but I guess it was just a game. Can't quite imagine a gull swallowing a starfish that size. LOL
    Luv, K

  2. I felt sort of sorry for the starfish, but you caught a great shot!

    Have a great day!

  3. Wonderful capture. Great clear shots.

  4. Brilliant capture I would say that bird is a star ...boom boom :-)

    Have a tanfastic week ;-)

  5. Wow what a cool series of photos you captured!!!

  6. Cool captures.. really wonder if the starfish did become bird food in the end.

  7. Very nice set of pictures, it's not easy taking shots to animals but you sure did a great job.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks everyone - It was great fun watching the antics - don't think the bird knew quite what to do with such a haul!!

  9. Oh what fun to see more of this gull. It appears he couldn't decide if he should eat the starfish or just play with it. Or perhaps he was playing with his food, the very thing his mother tried to teach him not to do.

  10. You are so brave to be so close (even if it is telephoto) :)
