Two of them were taking it in turns to dive-bomb us this morning. They were aiming for the dog rather than me this time.
And then on the way home from the beach we encountered the swans on the boating lake.
Took these photos of Tim on the beach this evening (after watching the sun set over the next bay) and catching his movement with the flash seemed to give a ghostly feel, especially the top shot where his legs appear to be transparent.

Good way to spend Father's Day. TheOtherHalf has had a very nasty illness over the last four or five days so she needs the sleep. The dog needs no excuse, of course. And I'm just enjoying taking it easy and catching up on some Moblogging.

Been attacked by a seagull again. If you imagine it in that top shot hurtling towards you at high speed, then putting its legs down at the last minute aiming for your head then... well, you get the idea.
And this one actually managed to hit me on the head. The trouble is that when they come at you from the front you can see to be able to duck. But when they come from behind it's not so easy.
And when I say 'hit' I don't mean by poo - I mean hit by the seagull itself.
I guess they do give a good opportunity for photographs but they really are a menace.
Lovely evening. Another blurry photo. And couldn't resist taking more in the series of Tim against various backgrounds.
