    You half expect the gull to say ‘Umm… it’s really bruised, poor you’ – very good capture, great caption too :-)

  • Lol! Thank you very much Themis, glad you found it amusing, I never know with this kind of shot whether its just me that sees the funny side with my warped sense of humour – obviously not with this one from the comments I’m getting!!
