Mom, when you come back bring me some pop-corn... (Thanks Damir) Galápagos- 1967

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

The striking vocabulary of swallowed tail gulls includes a scream, snore, rattle and whistle. There is a 'long call' apparently homologous with the generalised gull long call and a special call associated with downward choking .The calls are similar to sounds used for echolocation, creating sounds that echo back to the ears and help to pinpoint swimming prey. Juveniles use the white spot on the adult’s bill as a focal point when begging for food; the white is like a beacon in the night

oh, that stupid photographer is comming too near, I'll have to fly away but what of my baby???????

your title is too dry - I propose you this one......

Eva Lewitus on March 5, 2013

I didn´t put any title, hoping you´d help me out. but yours does not convince me. The gull isn´t looking towards the photographer!!! Please try again! May be, "I´m really fed up having to stay with my chick the whole time...the sea is calling me...." But, I´m not too happy with that either.
♥ Eva

error, eva, gull have nearly 180° of vision with each eye, not like men who are obliged to look in front to see -

maybe - "pay attention, chick, I'll show you how to start to fly......"

Wundervoller Schnappschuss,Like 2,gruß KURT

Eva Lewitus on March 5, 2013

DamirI accept my error, but still the gull looks towards the sea. And the chick has no feathers yes.(A chick takes its first flight at about 60–70 days old, and is fed by the adults until about 90 days) Please try again!

Wegen deinen zahlreichen Infos unter den Bildern, ist es so, als ob man einen Dokumentarfilm schaut. Diese Kombination ist sehr selten in Panoramio. Wieder ein sehr süsses Foto (mag ich am liebsten). Like 5. Grüsse, Wilhelm

Vielen Dank, Wilhelm Galápagos ist schon eine besondere Gegend, auch ich hab noch viel dazugelernt. Und ja, das ist was mir bei Pano so gefällt, nicht nur schöne Fotos sonder man kann viel von unserer schönen Welt lernen... Du machst es ja auch mit deinen Fotos von Deiner Umgebung...und ich geniesse es sehr.

Oh, Eva, welch hinreißend schöne Aufnahme! Gut auch die Erklärungen darunter. Die Galapagos Inseln müßen schon etwas besonderes sein. s. a. Darwins Finken u.a.

Liebe Grüße Anna

Für mich ein L+F

Eva Lewitus on June 19, 2013

Vielen dank aNNa, obwohl diese Foto schon so lange her ist, Galápagos scheint seinen Reiz nicht verlohren zu haben. Die Tiere haben immer noch keine Angst von den Menschen!
