Runaway photo of the week: Sassy seagulls at New Zealand

*Location : Somewhere in Auckland, New Zealand. We were just driving around.

They remind me of seagulls in Finding Nemo the movie but much sweeter. I’ve seen many of them in Busan, Korea but the ones in New Zealand are so clean, white and beautiful! And they don’t afraid of people I might add.

This photos can sum up with a conversation.

I said “Oh my god, what a beautiful seagulls! Look at them. They look like a ceramic doll or something. So cute!”



And they suddenly turn around with cold eye and said,“What did you say??”



And there were more….

How could they just so stand still?? Maybe they were admiring the beautiful Auckland just like me. The seagulls can appreciate the nature.. Even birds have a great personality in New Zealand. Hats off.

    yeah, they are beautiful esp when we don’t get to see them that much. somehow when I was in Australia, the locals look at them as some kind of a nuisance because they seem to be everywhere. Too many of them. LOL

  2. those birds remind me of the pigeons in Bolt. how long did they stand still?

    They are cute indeed, I particularly like the second picture, the one with a seagull looking straight back at you. I often still think they are cute, but yea, I never see any shy seagull, they are always quite daring. When we were in Sydney fish market eating fish and chips, some were trying to eat our food… Got to really see those plate…
