I was out on Port Phillip Bay on the weekend. I was trying to catch a few fish - and at least this time I was able to put some food on my families table as a result. Not a lot of food I have to admit, but sea-fresh fish is still sea-fresh fish!
As ever, the presence of a fishing boat attracted so seabirds - no albatross this time, just lots of Silver Gulls and a few Gannets passing by.
I can't resist the 'in flight' shot opportunity that comes of having gulls hanging in the air behind the boat. And a few well timed pieces of fish bait added to the excitement.
So, here are some Silver Gulls and an early summer blue sky.
I find the acrobatics and strangely determined looks of these birds constantly fascinating.
You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday and more animals at Saturday Critters. SM
