Daffodils and Seagull in Dublin

SEAGULL AND SPRING DAFFODILS, originally uploaded by ashkani.

Photographer ashkani tells us about this March 6, 2009 image: Well, daffodils are one of the first flower bulbs to come up in the early Spring, as you know. In Ireland, since 1988 The Irish Cancer Society has a major fundraiser where people purchase daffodil packs, and the money goes for care of cancer patients. You see daffodils everywhere, even out in wild cow fields–anyway, I was walking in Merrion Square Park in the heart of Dublin, when I came upon the seagull just walking around…and I waited until he posed by the blooming daffs.
