Watery Wednesday: Stop! Thief!



I didn't actually see this seagull swipe the slice of apple protruding from its beak.  But, the way it's standing so proudly displaying its prize I can't help but wonder if the bird waited for those swimmers to wade into the Gulf of Mexico, then made its move --- snatched their apple and strutted down the beach mocking them.  Whatever happened, it occurred in an oil free zone.  As you can see, Siesta Key beach is still oil free -- as are all the beaches in Sarasota.  To see more Watery Wednesday photos from participants around the world click here.

Cool shot, the gull against the swimmers. We could do with a beach holiday, thieving birds or not!

Cute! Seagulls can be pushy sometimes.

Thankfully your beach shot here is still oil free. This is a fun shot. I love how you captured the swimmers in the background watching the bird! Your header shot is gorgeous, too!

Good shot with swimmers behind. I often think that seagulls must see the beach as a giant banquet of hotdogs and Doritos. I'm glad Jonathan Livingston made a wise food choice

Very cool shot. Seagulls are always on the lookout for food. That is so cute.
