Obviously the weather is still warm enough for everyone to enjoy the water. Love the group of gulls sticking to themselves while the humans frolic down the beach.

Oh JM! These cute little seagulls are just heartwarmig over the view of that relaxing beach!

Greeting from the Philippines from your friend Steven :)

I really like the ancient fort in the background. A picturesque photo, Jose!

Looks like there are as many seagulls as people on the beach. Lovely day for Autumn.

What a great shot this is. I love the large group of people in the back and the large group of gulls in the foreground.

Beauty of a photo with the light and the colors. Must be a segregated beach, though. Looks like one portion is for humans and the other for gulls. And the way are gulls are all lined up! Must be training day for gulls.

So love the defined shapes of the birds in the foreground as if framing the lovely beach scene behind them.

Interesting to see all of the gulls pointing in the same direction. Nature is amazing, isn't it?
