Kelp Gull

During a visit to Tsitsikamma National Park, I cam across this seagull who was picking up pieces of weeds on the side of the swimming pool on the beach, then walking over to dunk it in the water. Maybe he was kidding himself that the saltiness was turning it into seaweed? LOL!!

Oh my word! What wonderful captures Joan! I also love the last photo with reflection. I wonder if that gull is ultra fussy and wants the seaweed to be clean. (Probably a female gull ? ) LOL! Have a great day. You certainly made mine! Greetings Jo
