What a silly three-point landing for this gull.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

This looks like a painful landing! Great shot Judy and I hope the cleanup goes rapidly - I am grateful that it appears the leak has been stopped for now!

@Scott F. Schilling: It could have been painful, and yes, it seems the leak news has slowed down. I too, hope the cleanup continues!

This gull seems like he's bowing to his public (audience). Cool shot Judy!

It happens..even with birds! (It reminds me of my several strange landings on the walkway, not from flying, but from running!) And how timely the shutter worked! Do you hurt?!

@Japanalia: Oh, Gabriela, you falls do not sound good. I hope you are not running these days!
