Every time I giggled this is how it would look at me.

I forgot this photo on the last post. This particular Seagull was the only one that showed no fear of me at all and would eat alone and turn it's back on me. The seagull would always be standing with it's two legs crossed and one wing hanging down. It didn't have any trouble walking or flying so it wasn't injured. Made for an entertaining few minutes.

Back on the east cost we always called Seagulls "Dump Turkey's" because they were very common and always at the dump. Never did find out if they tasted like turkeys. Although they are common south, in Nunavut they are one of the first signs the brief summer is starting.
My favourite photo of the evening. I originally passed it off as a failed photo but after looking at it again the eye kept drawing me in. Taken just as the seagull was taking off.
A rare moment in the summer. A raven and a seagull in the same place.
My second favourite photo of the evening.

Not the best photos but the conditions were bad. 10:30 pm and the sun had just gone below the hoizon, strong wind and the tempeture was -8C without the wind and the snow won't hold my weight anymore. After the initial photo below they took off and I decided to chase them though the knee deep snow. In the end it was all worth it.
Neither one ever turned their back on me even though I was a long way off at this point.
