ODD COUPLE AT THE BEACH

That title ought to get some hits, doncha think? :-) While exploring the tide pools with my grandboys, I saw these two standing on the floating kelp bed. I don't know what was going on exactly, but the gull seemed to be edging closer to the heron who croaked in warning several times and made some menacing flaps as well, before ultimately flying off in disgust. Maybe he didn't see the sign that said "sea-gulls only"? We were watching an old Walter Matthieu film recently, and I was thinking of he and Jack Lemon as the odd couple in the movie of the same name.Remember how cranky they were? Same thing in the bird world!
