The Mooch

On our trip to San Francisco last year I sat on the pier for a while and watched this man feeding the seagulls. Most of them would eat right out of his hand except for this one which was a little skittish.

I played with this photo in post processing a bit.

  1. I like it! I’ve been experimenting with bird pictures but if I ever hope to get anything besides cardinals I need a longer lens!

  2. Seagulls can be such pests. they even fly along side the ferry boats hoping for a hand out and will take food from your had if it is out. LOL

  7. Hi thanks for your greeting! Great shot here – especially the stop action and the man’s expression. He looks semi alarmed.

  9. That’s a great shot! A lot of people don’t like seagulls, but they’re such great subjects– photographers have to love birds that can’t be scared away easily.
