Ringing in Macro Monday


t1245


I think this ring-billed gull wants to go home with me.


t1248


t1247


Or, maybe not. What do you think he’s saying?


t1249


Is that so?


t1250


t1251


Boy, he’s almost as loquacious as I am! Too bad I don’t speak 'gull'.


t1252


One more yell, then. . .


t1253


He turned and walked away.

Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and tell me about it.  Words, no words, it's up to you.

  1. I think he's saying, "What's the matter with you people? Drop me a French fry, will you? This bird is hungry!"

  2. Heehee...Sandy might be right! I thought I saw a come-hither look in the first couple of pics. Beautiful as usual, Lisa!

  3. Quite the talker indeed! Your sequence of shots was not only remarkable, but quite entertaining. I've decided to put up a "macro" post tomorrow. Some that I had thought would be good I had posted already on Spatter...and while probably nobody would remember them...I try not to repeat. I did find one though. Looks like I have to get busy with some new shots. :-)

  19. Aww..good job. I just love the one with him head on, quacking at our face...lol~

  20. Haha, funny. I think he was yelling at your for taking his photo... but no food!! He seemed pretty irritated that you were bread-less and snapping his photo anyway... maybe he wanted the rights to his picture. Then he could make some $$$ and buy his own bread! :)

    Happy Monday!!

  22. Hi, now here I found a really interesting blog. And what a pictures. The place will be in my favourites. I think my camera critters can match to that meme? Or not? Anyhow, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yep, I think he wanted to go home with you! ;-)
    I play this week too!

  24. I'm not sure you'd want to know what he was saying - it looks like he was giving you an earful about something! LOL
    Maybe he felt he should be paid with food if you were going to use him as a model. Or maybe he was telling you that you were invading his personal space LOL
    Great shots and I love that we now get to wonder what he was thinking!

  25. Hi Lisa, I played but am not signing Linky. I love the shot with his mouth fully open to you. It reminds of male birds trying to attract the girls with their pretty displays. Maybe that is what he wanted from you. ;o)

  28. Its pretty obvious that he's saying " Yo Lisa !! Stop the Madness and get me a Taxi with The King of New York Hacks!!" ....well at leas thats what my gull-lip reading skills told me.

  30. I used to have such encounters with gulls before I got Molly, but somehow they head the other way now when we come near. I enjoyed your fun series of photos with commentary ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,
