a lazy seagull

Not sure I have ever seen a lazy looking seagull before, but the one that just drifted by the window, slowly, barely moving her wings, taking a right on 96th street, then coming back, taking a left on 96th street.....
She looked very much like a lazy yet serious kind of seagull, cruising not higher than the 6th floor perhaps, between the buildings of Manhattan... looking for something very different than food... (I guess...)
Hmm... I think I remember meeting serious seagulls at Lake Tahoe, last year...
But that was earlier in the morning, by a lake, it was a group of them, and I spent some time with them being as considerate as I could be with my 50's clicking machine. Let me see if I can find one of the pictures... yes... here:
(And I am thinking more of the guy in the background, as he looked a bit surprised by something moving next to him in the water...)


Actually, Witold, that seagull in the foreground looks more evil than it does lazy. Like it's plotting something.

jonathan livingston was a very serious seagull.... but you're right this one does look particularly evil.

Really?... it looks evil?... Plotting something?... (Is this why it and its friends attacked me just seconds later?... kidding...)
Hmm... I hoped it looked thoughtful... reflecting...
(I do not believe in "evil" animals... not kidding.)
: )

Having been recently bitten by a wasp, I can't say I subscribe to the notion that animals can't be evil.

I think I have a new slogan. Beware the gull.

she is basically sporting a half smile.
