This series started off as a mission for the Dark Side galleries. I knew that sometimes the birds down at the bluffs can get pretty agressive when ya feed them. So..I went armed with a loaf of bread, to see if I could get that Alfred Hitchcock "birds " feel .

I sat myself in the middle of the parking lot on the ground and started to toss bread around. My first customer...

Face off...this one actually challenged me for the bread. I missed the pic of him tearing at the plastic bag:er:

Whoops. That accident in the sky really is one!
I didn't know that'd happen to them, i.e. that they could become so greedy they'd lose their sense of navigation! I really like that one.
So is Photo 2 going to be prepared for the Dark Side Gallery then?
To me that one looks the most fitting of the series. Cool!

Excellent series! And the captions are really entertaining as well. (That one bird really does look like a drill marshall readying the troops). Those beady red-rimmed eyes, piercing glare and red mouth make these birds every bit as evil-looking as crows are reported to be. I wouldn't-ve "messed" with 'em, for fear of being "bombarded". You're a brave man to have 'looked up' at 'em to take the overhead pics 8)

Thanks so much everyone. I appreciate your comments. I was hoping they would get a little more aggressive, and show some true seagull spirit.\
The in air crash was pretty cool. The one bird even went into a spiral, but corrected before he came crashing down to the pavement.
LaFoto...Im thinking number two was the closest I got to what I was lookin for. I sure wised a crow had of shown up.:lmao:
