Bonaparte's Gulls

This time of year I like to stand on the Westview wharf and watch the little Bonaparte's Gulls
gracefully skimming the surface of the water looking for minnows. Above is an adult
bird, and below is a youngster, still with a mottled brown colouring on its wings.

They miss their catch on most attempts, but with a bit of patience one can
sometimes see one enjoying lunch.

  1. Great shots. Love the last action one. After being gone all summer, our heron has returned. - Margy
