As soon as I read that I Heart Faces had expanded their "pets only" challenge into an "all animal" challenge, I knew I had the. perfect. photo!!! I of course had the normal array of cat and dog photos, but figured I'd go with this one because it is "outside the box" so to speak.
I took this photo when we went down to Florida on vacation back in December 2009. We were sitting on the beach (in the mom mobile) eating McDonalds. As I was eating, one seagull would come close to the van and look at me with those "please give me some food." eyes. One. Then two. The ten. LOL! I got the genius idea of holding a french fry in my fingers and seeing if they would take it out of my hand......Well, the answer is Yes, Yes, YES!!!!
As soon as I saw that it worked, I grabbed my camera (my trusty standby, Kodak Easyshare point and shoot, in pink thankyouverymuch!) and whith one hand holding up the fry and the other on my shutter button, I grabbed this picture!
It's my hubbys favorite also!
Anyways, Head on over to I Heart Faces to check out more great pet/animal photos!!! And then check out the amazing Emilee, the Guest Judge this week! Her work is fabulous! Go HERE so I can be proved right!!! ;)
