These gulls have no intention of missing out on some bread. I enjoy the way the three arrayed themselves.

I love their groupng too :-) Gulls are so aggresive....When living on the west coast I used to think of gulls as aggressive New Jersey Salesmen...Now that I live on the East coast, albeit temporarily, I rather think of them as agressive Massechussets salesmen Hee hee hust kidding, just kidding.....In any case, it seems that the duck could care less..I love this shot glad you are still posting these- yesterdays was totally heartwarming - thanks Steve :-)

perfect capture of the moment, steve, and awesome and convincing processing !!!
though gulls may be aggressive and arrogant, i love their plaintive cries and miss them here in our landlocked country ...

Just because they's ranged themselves in such a good composition-manner, I'd have cropped it column-like.
