Will the Groundhog See His Shadow?

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 2 February 2017 in Animal & Insect.

I don't have a picture of Punxsutawney Phil so a seagull and his shadow will have to do! We have had such a mild winter so far but it isn't over yet. Happy Groundhog Day!

And to you, too. Unless the gulls are blind, they will see their shadow. Six more weeks. We can handle that.

A composition so appropriate for the day!! I love the long diagonal shadows cast across the boardwalk. Wish our winter was mild. But at least there is no snow....at least since right before Christmas.

well done black and white. a million seagulls see both states (shade and sun), thus by definition must predict the correct result.

Groundhog or Seagull ?
Maybe it's a joke...
Indeed, it's a beautiful picture... I love theses birds. In France, sometimes, we call them "Mouettes rieuses"...
I'm not shure Goéland ou mouette sur cette photo...
