Laughter on the Shore

Name Contradictor: Laughing Gull


Its call resembles a laugh but in bird song.

Nothing else laughable…

Beauty: distinct black, white and gray

Beak trimmed in complimentary red.

 True bird of the coasts: Gulf, and Atlantic…

Nesting, and feeding near the surf.

Regal, graceful, stately symbol sea and shore.

Why the Laughing Gull?

God said, “… let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.”

What does a grandfather, husband, former public school teacher and Education Specialist for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service with many life experiences in nature do with them? A naturalist with a camera-makes outside a daily destination. My confidence is that God will guide my words, and photos. We live in a magnificent world, come and look at it with me through eyes, lens and words. To God be the glory. Current Profile Photo- Prickly Ash, the name summarizes this brushy undergrowth well. It fascinates me with its thorny branches. Seeing a vine wrapped around the trunk called for a photo.
