I went out with the camera today to see what I could capture but it was a bit miserable again.  Rain with grey skies.  Anyway I went over to west Seattle to Alki Beach and found this pier with some boats propped up on the railings.  Sitting on the top of one of the boats was this seagull.

I walked up to it and the bird blazingly sat there looking at me, I could see the bird thinking “what the hell do you want?”

Anyway I decided to set up the camera and take this shot as behind the bird was the Seattle skyline and the sun was just going down, so building lights were coming on.

I took several shots and the bird kept moving and the light was low so I needed a long shutter.  When I got home I checked out the pictures and found one with the bird staying reasonably still.  But when I examined the image I saw the boat was covered in bird crap!  I suggested to Lisa that I should throw the image away but she liked it and thought it was funny, so here it is.

These Halo guys have no fear, they just throw a rope to the top of one of Lisa’s glass ornaments and started to climb!
