Ring-billed Gull ~ Larus delawarensis
Well today was pretty good. Didn't find a million dollar photograph but had lots of fun and enjoyment trying. I dropped the kids off at 7 am for school (They go early for Jazz Band), then decided to head out to the Lake. As I was driving over Cannon Dam I must have seen 100+ buzzards (okay officially their called 'Turkey Vultures') and tons of these ring-billed gulls. This is only the 2nd time I've ever tried capturing them so although the pics aren't million dollar winners... I was pleased just the same, and very excited about going back to try some more. Captured this one just as he coming back up out of the water. What a drenched head :-) I'll upload the others in the next day or so just fast as dial-up will let me.
BTW: Around here it isn't spring until the buzzards come home... so YEAH... it's finally Spring. :-) I'm so happy! I've gotta hurry up and finish my waterfall plans for the front yard quick.
