Happy Father's Day to all the Dads who love us, support us, (put up with us!) and believe in our dreams! Here's my Father and I standing in front of my first yurt back when I was 26- he didn't even call me crazy 😉- love you Dad ❤️ My Dad is the best story teller I know. I really enjoy hearing him talk about growing up, his time in the Navy, or his current travel adventures around the world with my Mom 🌎 ✈️. Plus + this guy is flat out hilarious and I think he was telling a good story when this photo was taken! 😁What do you appreciate the most about your dad? . . .
Swallow-tailed gulls are nocturnal (unusual amongst gulls). Around dusk most of them, with the exception of nesting gulls, head to the ocean to feed. This may be their way of avoiding competition from the larger and more aggressive birds such as boobies, frigate birds and albatrosses and/or it may be because they eat creatures that rise to the water’s surface at night. (The gulls prefer to forage during a full moon when there is a high abundance of creatures on the surface). The distinctive orange rings that circle their eyes expose a large area of the eyeball, helping them to see in the dark. 👀 . . . 📷
