The Bird and The Flower...

Just uploading my photographs from San Diego...and I loved this photograph of a gull looking thoughtfully at a flower at La Jolla Cove...

It's been a busy week without a lull...
But the sight of this gull
Looking at the flower
Has the power
To get a smile out of me...when I'm feeling dull!

I've heard of the birds, the bees and the flowers, but this is the first time I saw two of the component parts.

The Harbour Seals, the Brown Pelicans, and the Double-crested Cormorants of La Jolla Cove were just amazing...and after the rains, the trail was a riot of wildflowers, too.

I'm hoping that by tomorrow I can make my post about that short but wonderful walk down the trail...

After going to Mt.Solidad on Saturday, and to the Coronado Beach on Sunday, V took us to La Jolla while V, N, and A went home...and we were just amazed by La Jolla.

Several factors came together to make the very short visit a very memorable one, too. San Diego has been having a lot of rain, and this meant that the wildflowers were out in a riot of colours; apparently, the La Jolla trails are not so vividly colourful.

It was just on sunset, and the light was really wonderful, too....and the last thing was that neither DnA nor I had any idea that we would see any wildlife!

Now this, at last, is the photo that I promised mamtanaidu. Just look how artistic that bird poop guano looks against the rocks! I never knew that poop could be aesthetically appealing! (No, there was no smell, either, for some reason, probably the sea breeze.)

La Jolla...V,thank you for a magical, if too-short, visit to this wonderful Pacific sea-cove!
