Rockport Gull

Sitting on lobster pots right in front of Motif #1, this Gull was pretty relaxed and not shy about being the center of my attention







Yes, a lovely Gull in Rockport.


In my next post we'll get a look at some Gloucester Gull's. Brace yourself!

Thanks ladies! The back of his white fluffy head kind of reminded me of a bald eagle. It's a good lookin' Gull!

Di, my camera has a fixed lens, 28-400mm, which is part of the reason I like it so much ... I don't ever need to change lenses!!!

I know gulls are considered rats of the sky, but I've always thought they were beautiful with their soft grey and white feathers. I particularly like the 3rd photo. Gorgeous.

I especially like 3 and 4 - and pick 3 over 4. It is so easy to overlook gulls because they are so common. But they're adaptable, and survivors.
