Gullinary experiments

I haven’t had much time lately to write any blogs or sort through the catacombic depths of my photos. Instead I thought I’d share the product of a rather pleasant day of exploring the pier in Galway city recently. I always wanted more flight shots and the less then cautious black headed gulls (and some other species too) seemed like the perfect subjects.

Crabs are in high demand these days!

  1. Beautiful photos!! Love the detail :)

  2. yep - actually really like the first shot of post.

  3. That third inflight shot is a cracker.

  4. Think that last bird is a common gull and not a ring billed gull. Common gulls can have the band on their bill but the ring billed gull has a pale eye.
