Gull in the Flowerbed

By NDODS    
Good Morning to you all at ePz

I trust that you all well?

Thank you for all your great comments, messages and votes following yesterdays image.

Todays images were captured this afternoon whilst observing a rather noisy Gull prancing around the flower beds in front of my bedroom window.

I hope that you have a great day whatever you get up too, for me I shall simply take the day as it comes.

Regards NathanGrinGrinGrin
