What's he doing?

An effort at humour, for Saturday.

I know it isn't a particularly well presented picture, but I only just managed to get both the swan and the gull in the frame.

Taken at Hatchett Pond, near Beaulieu, this cygnet was watching the seagull preening. I like to think it was interested in what it was doing.

At this place the pond is slightly lower than ground level, with a board edging. As always the puddle is there because of heavy rain.

..........

A week or so of bird images.
The first time I've had a 'theme' but I've quite a few pictures I'd like to share and see what you think, and what might be done to improve them 'for next time'.

lovely ellie.
Nice observation, and a nice capture. I love the reflection of the seagull in the water.
Super bird pic! Very sharp and great reflection. It's funny how the swan is watching the sea gull. I like it!
Very nice shot Ellie. I like the frame you made, the scene between the to "guys"...

Very nice humor, Ellie, for my Saturday morning (now here in Atlanta)! I love it when we can anthropomorphize rhe animal kindom. Makes us feel all one, right?! smile

The seagull's reflection is phenomenal, BTW!
Ah yes a young guy. I guess he's not mad enough to shew that gull away. I miss seeing so many swans here as I did in Europe.
Even a funny one smile smile

Ellie, I think it is a wonderful picture. As you suggest, there is humour there. The image also has a lot of unusual aspects...actions of the 3 [sic] birds, weird piece of grass sticking out into the water, difficult to understand line where the 2 ponds come together.
I like this image a lot.
