  1. These gulls are beautiful, but can be a pest too! Your shots are excellent, Donna. πŸ™‚

  2. All very nice images, Donna! Fabulous capture of the gull in flight. The fellow on the rock made me laugh, nice pose and of course, feet. The last one is a lovely composition, all those lines, the layers of colors and the gull on driftwood. It all looks very relaxing there.

    • Thank you, Ellen! The gull in flight was fighting a head wind and was literally suspended in front of me. πŸ™‚ Beautiful in upper Michigan, and now getting a bit chilly already, feels like fall for sure!

      • I love capturing birds like that! Nice you are getting to enjoy the start of fall there, Donna. Are you staying until the snow flies? It’s starting to look a bit like fall here with the vegetation drooping. It feels kind of sad, but I’m looking forward to some cooler nights!

        • Sorry for such late response! We left Michigan, went back to Indiana, got the motorhome and have been back home (Maryland) for a couple days. We were to go to Colorado (for the fall aspens) but decided we’ll make the complete mid-west trip that was lost another summer. I’m still trying to recoup and regroup after all the traveling and unpacking. πŸ™‚

          • Glad you are safely back to home base and hopefully with the motor home in tip-top condition! We’ve thought of some traveling, too, but are not actively making plans right nowβ€”a lot of β€œwait and see.”

  3. Gulls are often overlooked because they are common but I really like them! They seem intelligent and are fun to watch. Great captures! I especially admire the first in-flight image with the beautiful aqua blue background.

    • Thank you, Denise! You are right, I’m guilty at overlooking them. The first one in flight was literally suspended almost still, the wind was that strong. He was begging me to take the shot. I am so glad I did. πŸ™‚
