I went to a lake today to look for pelicans, found a few a long ways away, so I shot gulls when the wind began to sweep the shoreline and create waves. I thought that it was a decent environment for a shoot, even though the subject is common:

Great stuff Norm, all of them. The first one gets my vote for favorite though. I really like that shot.

I don't know where Norm is shoooting from but they sure look different than Brooklyn Gulls!!! :lol:

Great shots of these guys! A stiff wind is the best time to photograph them - they tend to hang in the breeze...

Are they young Kittywakes?

Tack sharp, great DOF control and perfect exposures. They don't get any better than that. I only wish that in the last shot, the OOF people in the background were below the gull so it looked like they were going to get divebombed. Great shots Norm!

Thanks you guys, sorry it took so long to respond on this one, it got lost to me for some reason. If I had my bird book with me I could tell you what kind of gull it is. It's a much more petite looking gull that the usual ones we get around here.
