Tai Chi Gull

Thirty days in heaven! Living in a house in Manly, Australia, mere yards from the beach, daily walks to the Corso for coffee, watching the ocean, and dodging the gulls.

The gulls of Manly have no fear whatsoever of humans. They don't think twice about snatching food on its way to your mouth, almost mocking you as they do it. In fact, their peskiness far-surpasses their beauty and grace.

This "Tai Chi Gull" wasn't interested in stealing my sandwich. Rather, he chose to perform a one-legged ritual for my wife, Velda, and I mere feet from where we were sitting. Being a practitioner of Tai Chi myself, I couldn't help but marvel at this little fellow's ability to prance around on one leg with ease.
