Camouflage

On our staff outing last week I noticed something very interesting: the seagulls in seagulls in Mefjordvær on the other side of Senja have learnt the art of camouflage!

Take a look at the pictures. They choose to sit on rocks which closely match the colour of their grey plumage, and then they ‘decorate’ the surrounding area with patches of white so their white feather blend in too. Ingenious!
