Herring Gull (Larus argentatus)

I don't know why is called a "Herring" Gull, they are after bread, fish and chips and anything that we throw down, a scavenger. Actually, our mess.

  22. 3 distinctive shots from 3 different angles. They certainly do love human stuff. And they'll even take it from you if you're not watching:)

  30. That Herring Gull pose - on one leg 'hanging out' on the chimney and the Miles Davis seem to work together very nicely Bob.

  32. Nice and detailed series. I liked all of them but especially the second one. Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  33. very cool looking bird!
    maybe he's called a herring...because that's his favorite 'i wish i had a herring to eat' food...but it's a lot easier to just scavenge after what people throw away!!

  34. Love thesemages Bob, I am rather fond of gulls and think they get overlooked as subjects for photography.
