Laughing Gull Chicks

I was at the beach capturing some images of Laughing Gull (Leucophaeus atricilla) chicks on Thursday morning. I get a text around 10:24 AM from Silke asking me if we had lost power here. I text her back… “I dunt know at beach 2 take pics of chicks.” After what I thought was my reply, I started thinking… Um… That didn’t sound too good. Oh well. She should know me well enough by now that I meant baby seagulls, not some summer hotties in scantily clad bathing suits. Right?

My name is Luka – I live on the second floor 🎢

Anyways… She calls me on her lunch break:

S: Did you get my texts?
D: Yes I did dear.

S: Did the power go off there?
D: Well… The clocks aren’t reset so I’d say no.

D: Did you get the text that I sent you?
S: No. I didn’t get any text from you.

D: Hum. That’s odd. I’m fairly sure I hit the send button. I’ll have to check it out when I get off the phone with you.

Continuing our lunchtime conversation, I told to her what I had sent to her. I’m like, “You do know that I mean seagull chicks… Right?” She says, “Sure you do honey.” After a quick laugh together we ended our convo by wishing each other a good afternoon. After our Afternoon Delight Polite, I checked my messages to find out why she didn’t receive my text. It was a rather simple explanation as you may notice; via the screen capture above – I simply didn’t tap on the send button. Doh!

No matter. I got a strong alibi. The following images are all the proof anybody should require of what kind of chicks I was really taking pictures of πŸ˜‰

Who is that guy over there and what is he doing?

A young’n learning the ropes.

Mom… mom… mom… mom… dad?

Enjoying the pleasures of a salt life.

10 Reasons Why Fishing Is Better Than Sex

1.) Your fishing partner will never say, “Not again. We just fished yesterday! Is fishing all you ever think about?”

2.) Nobody expects you to fish with the same partner for the rest of your life.

3.) No matter how much liquor you’ve had you can still fish.

4.) It is perfectly acceptable to pay a professional to fish with you once in a while.

5.) You can have a fishing calendar on your wall at the office, tell fishing jokes & admire the “Big Ones” without getting sued for fishing harassment.

6.) If you want to watch fishing on television you don’t have to subscribe to the Playboy channel.

7.) When you see a really good fishing person, you don’t have to feel guilty about imagining the two of you fishing together.

8.) The Ten Commandments don’t say anything against fishing.

9.) You can have more than one fishing partner and not feel guilty.

10.) It is perfectly respectable to fish with a total stranger.

I happened across this while out-and-about capturing some sights. It was posted on the inside of a bait store window. Totally appropriate for such a place. Have a fishing fantastic day πŸ™‚
