Hey! You! Get Off Of My Raft!!! 20070812

Sturgeon Lake

'Bob', the gull on the right and a neighborhood resident, is very territorial
and fiercely defends the area he considers to be his domain, pictured here on a
swimming raft giving an interloping gull a most uncivil welcome as it so foolishly
tried to land on 'Bob's' raft.

Photographed near Lindsay, Ontario Canada.

The interloper seems to be looking at us, as if to say, "What did I do wrong???"
