A Silver Gull with its baby on Busselton Jetty in Western Australia
a pair of gulls had decided a disused portion of the jetty left after the restoration work was just the perfect place to raise their chic

    Aaaah, I’ve never seen a baby gull before. Awesome capture and photo opportunity Rick.

  • A first for me also Elaine, I always thought they bred on some inhabited Island or secluded place
    cheers Rick

    this is incredible ♥♥♥ I LOVE this. You are amazing! I have been saying for years ‘how come you never EVER see a photograph of a baby seagull? or even baby seagulls in real life’ ? You have not only captured that, but with it’s parent! Incredibly beautiful Rick!!!

  • Thank you heather, there is beauty out there, if we stop to look and appreciate
    sadly most of us are just too busy living to see it, in too much of a rush.
    yes it was a very pleasing moment for me to see my first baby gull, to see the tenderness of the parent bird. especialy when they are just thought of as a scavenger, a pest that just steals our fishing bait. just cements for me that everything has a place and purpose
    cheers Rick

    Nice one Mate. Looks like they are not showing any interest in you at all.
