Default SEA Gulls

Hello everyone. The title is just a small joke I know how much it bugs Kevin . Lately there has been a great amount of gulls which I believe are ring billed gulls. Might be wrong but if any can properly id that would help. They make great subjects to practice bif pics. Hope you enjoy, C&C welcomed.

Yep great looking C Gulls, or in this case ring-billed seems to me.
They are great to practice on, usually come pretty close and work
dirt cheap, couple fast food fries will do the trick. They actually make
for a very nice subject. I love it when you can capture the red ring around
the eye, like the last one

I have a special appreciation for Gulls and Pigeons as they are the birds I cut my teeth on in my beginning Flight Capture days and a fun subject, readily available, interesting poses and varied species.

Ya did'em proud, nice work indeed Robert.
