Feeding Frenzy

So I was standing on top of this large rock trying to get a nice skyline picture of Victoria that was a little different from the last hundred I've posted and I noticed a lot of querulous cries from seagulls. A few seconds later the woman in the photo to the right appeared with her bag of goodies. Clearly the seagulls had seen her coming and knew what was in the bag. I was standing on ground zero so I removed myself to watch the show. I like to see people feed wild animals, particularly when they are focused on not particularly loveable animals like seagulls. I know there is some doubt as to the political/ecological correctness of feeding wild animals (encouraging dependency, etc.) but it seems to me to be a nice acknowledgement that we share our world with other species.

One plucked a sandwich right out of my dad's hand at an outdoor restaurant on San Francisco Bay, in Tiburon, CA. One of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Wonderful shots Ben, I see no harm in feeding the birds now and then.
