The Gull and Johan Ludvig Runeberg

On the Esplanade in Helsinki, Finland, the poet and writer Johan Ludvig Runeberg stands as a statue. This gull has found Runeberg´s head to be a comfortable restingplace.

I share this post with The Daily Post´s weekly Photography Challenge: All-Time Favorites as well. I am very sorry to see the end of this challenge. I participated with my first post on this challenge in October 2012.

 

 

 

Baby gull on street

IMG_1361I found this baby on the street in the beginning of July. I was a bit worried he would walk into the street and tried to coach him into the bushes. I hope he made it. When I returned the same way half on hour later he wasn´t there anymore so I hoped the parents managed to move him in a safer direction.  More animals on Camera Critters and more birds on The Bird D’Pot.
