[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These two decided to join in for lunch on a deck overlooking Monterey Bay today.

As they were uninvited, I managed to fire off just a couple shots before one of the wait staff cleared them from the area!

I like the angles of wings, the rounded chair backs - it strikes me as a nice image. And, I like that both have something in their beaks!

A second shot is pretty awesome - the bird on the right is just landing to joint the party. The background, however, shows a neiboring pier, though, which I thought detracted from the shot. Maybe I'll post it tomorrow and get other peoples' opinions.

Beautiful day in Monterey today, that's for sure.
