  1. Leave the fingers, leave the fingers!
    Like the new header, Kathe!

  2. 'Serial snatchers' - sometimes we can say these words about seagulls...~ for me seagulls - dear reminder about the past...

  3. They are really good about getting your food too. A feeding frenzy indeed.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs. :)

  4. Reminds me of the seagulls in "Finding Nemo": "Mine MINE, MINE!!!!

  5. Beautiful haiku about the seagulls!

  6. They sure can snatch food quickly!

  7. At Disney World, they have to have nets over some outdoor eating areas to keep the gulls from swooping down and snatching food right off of people's plates!
