Relentless Seabirds

My family and I took a day trip to Ocean City New Jersey, the last beach trip of the season. The seagulls were particularly relentless that day, bullying anyone who showed signs of snacking. They hovered threateningly over us as we sat on the beach, winging their way towards my sister in an aggressive effort to snatch her crackers. A cracker she tossed up to the flock as a futile attempt at a peace offering is captured in this photo.
