So here I am again already, before time slips away. The new series for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge are Things of Nature – and here I was expecting one with only birds, with tricky prompts like a bird with four colours, or must have six birds in a row.  LOL. I have no idea why I thought that.

Anyway, for Fun Fotos, I present you my seagull pics taken at Kingston S.E., South Australia, a week or so ago. We spent two nights at their RV Park, no facilities except a nearby public toilet and beach shower. This pretty spot, by the jetty, was only $10 for a maximum stay of 48 hours. This is the town with the giant crayfish. Sadly, the sculpture has shrunk with familiarity, not helped by the trees near it having grown.


Seagulls are always a lot of fun to photograph. They can be sedate, or raucous. These sprang into action when a fellow, seeing saw me taking photos, stirred them by throwing bread closer and closer to me. It started to get a bit Hitchcock-ish, so I was glad when he drove off! Still, I got some great shots. (Nikon D3000)




Thanks for looking. It’s ‘Leaves and Trees’ next week.


Do visit Cee’s entry for her Fun Foto, and tootle around and have a look at the enormous variety of bird photos linked from the comments.

The Big Lobster, Kingston SE, South Australia

The Big Lobster. The first picture is from Wikipedia  because I don’t have a proper front-on picture handy. Stands 17 metres tall and located Kingston S.E., South Australia. Known locally as Larry the Lobster.

I can’t believe I let myself be seen in public in that track suit! This must have been about 1992 or so.
