Camera Critters - Seagulls

I have been around seagulls most of my life.  We moved inland away from the sea when Gregg retired from the navy, I knew I would miss them and wasn't prepared to say goodbye.  I didn't need to worry as even though we are not visiting the ocean on a regular basis, I find them in the most unexpected places.  These were at Burke Lake Park a couple of weekends ago.

  4. Gorgeous birds and great photos. We get seagulls here, though we are two hours drive from the ocean. I suspect that many of them live and die here, never having seen the sea.

  5. Love the action shots, Denise. We have gulls in our garden AS I TYPE. It's so cold they're searching for food.

  12. What great shots!

    We get them on our lake too. They're noisy during the summer though and wake everyone up at about 4 am.

  15. Great shots. It's hard to capture them in flight like that. I've tried and have only been successful a few times.

  18. Lovely series of shots Denise! I really like the last one against the gorgeous sky you had overhead.
    I remember the first time I heard seagulls was in Virginia. My not as yet husband was working at the Norfolk shipyard and my first morning I could hear them calling.
