Could This Be Narcissus Gull?

In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter who was known for his beauty. He was proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. Narcissus went to a pool where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it – not realising it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus lost his will to live. He stared at his reflection until he died. (Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with oneself and one’s physical appearance or public perception). Go the gullible gull. Gold Coast, Australia.

Snapping Pictures In My Undies

If you suddenly wake up on the National Geographic Explorer in the Antarctic Peninsular in sub-zero temperatures, and you pop your head through the curtain to see what is happening with the weather, make sure you don’t rush outside in your undies (underwear) to take a picture as I did. But when you haven’t got time to get dressed you have no choice. Yah, but what a sight it was. You beauty!dsc_0455
