I personally find them very beautiful. They are also very abundant and will usually hang around in one spot when not disturbed. Perfect drawing subject.
I have also included a seagull,
I hate seagulls
they are very aggressive unhappy birds.
But my friends at art school call me the seagull due to my devouring skills at gallery openings.
I can't help it,
I love cheese and dip.
So I'll just pretend that I have an affinity to the bird
due to my namesake.
