Common Birds….Uncommon Beauty


I went down to a local lake yesterday morning just because I hadn’t been there in a while.  Long story short – there wasn’t much activity among the normal lake denizons like the ducks and other water fowl.  Given that lack of action, I found myself taking photos of some very common birds – pidgeons and seagulls as they were flying by me.  While I have often thought that these birds are wonderful flyers, I have not often taken the time to photograph them.  Here are a couple of shots that I really like that show these dynamic flyers in all their glory – hope you enjoy.

Better known for pooping than for flying?

  3. Their agility is fascinating like when they hang motionless in the air at human head height by the shoreline as the winds blow and the water crashes to the beach …
