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.

Gorgeous pictures that made me smile. I did name my son, Jonathan after a certain seagull.

Beautiful shots, Denise! Great blue sky! We don't get a lot of gulls here, but we do have some on larger lakes.

Seagulls are great scavangers and very noisy. Great shots. Susan

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.

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

The sight and sound of seagulls would have firstly been implanted in your brain from your days in Devon Denise.

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.

Lovely captures of birds in flight. We get hundreds of seagulls here, trying to eat the tourist's ice creams.

Beautiful shots, Denise! I love seagulls. Too bad we don't see them here in Hawaii.

Wonderful captures.

Kay said...

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

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.
