Snappy pics of seagulls being harassed by yours truly. 

On a recent vacation to the Redneck Riviera I visited an alligator farm. (To the uninformed the “Redneck Riviera” is the stretch of beach along the Alabama coast extending through the Florida panhandle. Despite it’s name it has some of the most beautiful beaches in the US. It adopted it’s name during the MTV/Panama City days when it was pretty rough.) These were taken with my new snappy camera. Haven’t purchased a point and shoot camera in at least 5 years due to the fact that I kept losing them. Now, older and wiser, I thought it was time to put away the iPhone and step it up a notch. Now the problem is these little cameras’ file sizes are so large it just means that I have to buy more hard drive space. When does it ever stop?
