"Smooth Sailing"...


In early January, I spent an afternoon photographing Ring-billed Gulls (Larus delawarensis) at Holla Bend NWR. This scene really caught my eye as the colors of the snow-filled, overcast skies matched the color of the gulls wings. Gulls are relatively active when in flight so to capture this posture of the gull relaxed in a turn seems to blend with the smooth texture of the sky.
