I must admit that I started this, on purpose. The seagull landed on the ledge near the ancient Spanish Stairs in Rome. I wanted to see if I could create a distraction, draw people away from ancient, spectacular architecture. I never did photograph the disgusting flying rat. I was quickilt joined by several others who did not disappoint. Selfies in ancient Rome with a seagull / flying rat! Apparently it a bucket list item for many tourists. I stood and watched, quietly clicking away at those clicking away at the bird. Mission accomplished!
