Sticky Pisonia seeds are matted in the rear feathers of this immature silver gull that appeared near the Heron Island Resort during a storm on Heron Island, off the Great Barrier Reef. The storm lent itself to the discovery of how wild animals protect themselves in harsh weather as well as ample opportunities to see such creatures in their natural habitat.
