MONOCHROME: Why did the sea gull miss the taxi?


The gull probably missed the Tampa River Taxi because he was eyeing some fresh fish swimming by and wasn't even at the right dock. Bird-brain. Maybe he thought the boat was filled with anglers and by just standing tall and looking good they'd toss him a bite, slow and let him hop aboard. Whatever his excuse, he's reduced to watching them leisurely cruise by and head up the Hillsborough River. It's more likely he imagined it was the African Queen motoring by and he'd already seen the movie and wanted no part of the squabbling that lay ahead. (He might have been eaten in the exchange...or fed into the engine for fuel!)

Why pay those fares when you can go by air?

I think the gull was lulled into a reverie, dreaming of what life could be if he were a Egret!

Cute shot, my friend!

Nice monochrome Frank! I have never been fond of seagulls, so I would have to speed up if one wanted a ride from me.

Bogie would have taken care of that stow-away in short order. Nice shot here Frank.
