For such a garbage eater, these two look pretty arrogant. They were hanging around the wharf looking for free meals from the lobster fishermen who toss unused bait overboard.

very nice! the back one looks sort of like a hawk, is it?

It isn't a hawk. It's just a variety of common gull found on the east coast.

I think the blue/grey background is a huge part of making this shot interesting. We get those gulls down this way also ... I've seen them in NZ and further south in Australia.
