Glittering Eyes!

Glittering Eyes
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”~Roald Dahl~
Run like the wind, fly like a bird, soar like an eagle! Does this creature not speak to our need to be free from all that restricts us? Think of all the captions that would befit this photo. 
Seagulls are tenacious birds that never give up on any morsel of food whether in your hand or not. Definitely not respected by beach goers, you never want to entice them with food as they will never leave your side. 
Walking the beach, however gave me a new respect for these scavengers of the sea. In their element they are graceful, yet playful, standing guard waiting for any opportunity to seize a opportunity! They are quite magical, an unlikely secret, I would have never observed or given much thought, without the lens of my camera!

Pin It!

They are such sneaker uppers! I love watching them on the beach. Don't like it when they steal other food right out of the mouths of the birds!
