    Way to go, Daisy!! Awesome awesome shots. I've never seen a baby seagull before. #1, 2 and 3 of the seagull shots just blow me away!

    Amazing --- these are of the very same quality as Ray's - I cannot see any difference between his and yours. Actually, haha!, you got mommy and daddy on the nest TOGETHER and he did not :greenpbl: --- one over him, I say :lol:

    The gull chicks look so soft and cuddly!
    I showed them to my son who happens to be the only other family member up on this Saturday morning here, and we read about your fear that the daddy-gulls might poop on you together and he said: "That fear is real, they do that, and some are pretty well on target! And they can produce amazingly large quantities of ... but still better than to be get vomited on by the chicks ... yes, I've seen that in some nature docu on TV: somewhere in this world there are chicks that defend themselves by using 'projective vomit' onto their enemies, and their gastric acids are so strong it becomes really painful to be hit by that!" Wow, the things that my children can teach me...! :D

    Back to this series: wow. Very well done!
