Get Into Place!

We're still with The Gulls at Day's Bay on the eastern edge of Wellington Harbour...!

 

This Southern Black-Backed Gull could almost be heard muttering "Get into place!" as she tried so hard to get that last feather into line. In fact she was trying so hard that I thought she was going to get herself swamped by the wall of sea water rushing towards her...

 

So did the incoming wave reach her?

 

Of course not. As it hissed to a tired halt just inches from her feet, the bird made one final attempt to get the out-of-place feather under control and, finally satisfied with her efforts, promptly lay down on the sand and went to sleep...!

 

What a life...!

 

 

Thanks for visiting my Site Folks, and thanks especially for taking the time and trouble to leave a Comment; it's always nice to hear from you...!
