MOM, She Won't Share!

It's Mine, I Saw It First
Caught these two gulls bickering over a poor little crustacean. For a while it was a tug of war, somehow the crab remained intact, struggling with all his might. Smugness on the face of the victor as she scurried away! Had I a little cocktail sauce I might have joined in on the tussle. 
The ocean intoxicated, regurgitating objects of all shapes and sizes, indigenous and foreign to it's environment. Amazing what a hurricane can conjure up! 
The beach littered with giant globs of seaweed, most of which the ocean will reclaim as the rhythmic waves return to their normal beat. 
Mother Nature, at her worst and best, convincing mankind of the respect She is worthy!
Watching the antics of these amusing birds, a gift of mindful gratitude. 
Have a wonderful day!

Pin It!

They do look like a couple of siblings arguing over the last cookie, don't they?

Great capture and commentary, as usual, Rosemary! :)

You really captured a funny moment and I love what you wrote...you really have a way with words, Miz Rose!
If you eat the peach pie without ice cream, it would fit into your diet. LOL
