Hiding out


The boat, "Shirley," became a hiding place for this gull.  The boat, bobbing gently in the waves, provided a certain amount of protection for the bird who had sought out its own special place far from the maddening crowd!

This gull is no bird brain. He knows a good resting spot when he sees one.

Taken For Granted said...

Perhaps the gull's name was "shirley". Who knows. It was a free ride.

Handy spot for a bit of a snooze.

I think the Gull's name is Shirley and look at that smirk on his face.

He couldn't hide from you! :-)

Lowell, on the bike I'm shooting right, left up and down, always on the move. It also amazes me when I see them at home and see how well they come out. We've been doing this for many years now.
Thanks for your visits and comments.
Un abrazo

I am always attracted to empty rowboats and this one is even more appealing because of its passenger.

It does look pretty cosy in there Lowell, the gentle rocking of the boat tres soothing.. that seagull is a smart cookie ☺

SRQ said...

Curious. I don't think I've ever seen a seagull actually sit in a boat. Flyby -- of course. Perch -- naturally! But, sit? Very unusual. Good eye!

Marleen said...

Contemplating its thoughts maybe..

RedPat said...

It's nice to have a little private time.!!

This gull seems to know how to recharge himself apart from his group. Or does he have a physical problem? Bird's entrance on a boat is unusual.
