The Gull Feeder

Feeding the Gulls, Pigeons, Ground Squirrels, etc. is prohibited in La Jolla,
but I find it fascinating how the Gulls come to this old guy and eat out of his hand.
He's been doing this for years. Note the flying cracker dust.

Sometimes the only pleasure they get out of life. Often seen feeding pigeons on a bench park, all over the world. Thank you for sharing.
