See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil ...

Continuing with my bird theme, I found these three trying their best to imitate the famous monkeys, on one of our beach strolls recently.

Beautiful capture .. I love photographing seagulls and if you sit long enough to observe them they are extraordinarily funny birds to watch..there is a very obvious pecking order among them. This photo is lovely and makes me want to load up the car and head for the seashore!! Have a great day Rick!

teca said...

Uff! Some posts without coming here and I seem to have had many good things... that your posts are charming, honey!
I liked the comparison with the three monkeys. Genial!
Kisses, honey.
Good Sunday.

Rick said...

I think you're right, Scott - one look at my lens and they thought "I don't think so ..." ;-)

Thank you Ruth - who knew gulls could be comical !

Ha ha, Dawn - I know what you mean ! Thank you.

Thanks Laura; you're right - there was a brisk breeze that day.

Rick said...

LOL Susan - they epitomized the saying.

Thank you kindly Cat - I appreciate your visits and kind words, and am honoured by the award. I will make a point of coming over (I think I also owe Darlene and Joseph a similar visit).

Gracias Elvira. Thank you for visiting and commenting. I very much enjoyed visiting your Tuscany and will be back for more.

Merci beaucoup Marty ! There is such a variety here and I have many more to discover. Soft little bisous d'oiseaux pour toi !

Rick said...

LOL - thanks Julia !

Thank you Darlene ! Glad to hear you're getting a sniff of spring ... at least for a few days. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thanks Soraia !

Your visit and comments are appreciated Tiago !

Rick said...

You're absolutely right, Stewart - and also 2 tails ! He's not only not seeing evil but also his buddy pressed up beside him ;-)

Thanks Leslie !

Ha ha, does it work for you, Farmchick ?

Good eye, Leovi - this must be the wing section ;-)

Rick said...

Ha ha Joseph - you've obviously started your weekend early ! Thank you (and enjoy) !

You're right, Katherine. Sometimes they're overlooked because they're fairly common, but their antics can be hilarious. Perhaps after all your troubles it would be good therapy to get away to the seashore with your camera for a bit. Hope your weekend is going well !

Gracias Julia - these 3 inspired me ;-)

Muito obrigado, Teca ! Nice to see you back. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend, and many beijos for your absence ;-)
