A Sky Watch of Soaring Seagulls


Overhead and all Around

at Glimmerglass State Park,
any lake,
ocean
or
river
~
you'll see Seagulls Soaring!

You'll also see them stop to rest or look for picnic treats left behind.

Then,
how good it feels to find those little love notes in the sky!

Your sky shots are super, Maria and that last even has a free-form pink heart to go with the banner.

Beautiful...I love the seagulls, they are here too...eating the grasshoppers and crickets from the fields. Have you heard how they came after prayers for help by the early Utah pioneers? They're first crop was coming up and it was being devoured by crickets, they went to the fields in groups, trying to kill them off but there were way too many. Kneeling in prayer, they plead for God's help and shortly there after, they sky was darkened by huge flocks of seagulls who flew down into the fields..eating and regurgitating the crickets. Ever since this, segulls have been loved here! :D

I loved that last photo of the seagull Maria. He sorta looked like he was saying "Hey, hows it goin?"!
I keep seeing heart clouds on other peoples blogs. I keep looking and looking but so far no luck! But I'll keep trying! I love yours, very pretty! Love Di ♥

You take us to such beautiful places with your pictures Maria. I love the water and the sea gulls. Thank you for sharing your day. You always bring such joy.

The last photo would make a lovely card, Maria!
I saw a heart in the clouds too this week!

Hello, Maria,
Beautiful seagulls and skies, dear friend! That lovely heart in the sky is such a great reminder of God's love for us. I am so glad the prayer "Grace for this day" has been a blessing to you. I have it on my refrigerator door and read it often as a reminder of what I need for each and every day. Sending lots of love and hugs your way, my friend~ Vicki

I've got to start looking for the hearts in the clouds. You are always finding awesome things like that--aren't the seagulls beautiful?!

Nice to see the gulls while sky watching. With blue skies like that I'm sure they're just enjoying their time.

Our weather is now HOT!!!! 35 celsius! Bingo bango..it was only 25 a few days ago!
Hope all is well and you are enjoying life my friend.
Sending you some Summer Love. xoxoxo

I'm from Southern California not far from the beach so seagulls remind me of "home". I lived near Dallas Texas for a couple of years and I was suprised to see them there too. Now that I don't see them as much I appriciate them more. :) The setting sun gave the cloud in the bottom photo a very nice color.

Have a great weekend!

Nice sky and great captured for the bird..Good one !

DrillerAA09 said...

All of these captures are very nice. The flying gulls are excellent composition and the last capture speaks to me in a special way. Thank you for sharing.

Rosie said...

Oh Maria,
You are one talented photographer. How many shots did it take to get that GREAT shot...
I was constantly snapping while in the boat trying to get the perfect shot...they did not look any thing like yours...
Have the best day, tomorrow...Sweet Dreams Rosie

EcoRover said...

Gulls sure seem to do well everywhere. As I recall, there is a gull monument in Salt Lake commemorating the flock that saved the Mormon pioneer farmers. Yeah, here it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seagull_Monument
