Ellipsis - Monday Photo Shoot: For the Birds
Carly from Ellipsis chose BIRDS as our theme this week.
So, I've overdone ducks and geese and robins over the last couple of months and I had this great idea to go to the zoo today and shoot some exotic birds. I figured, Friday morning, there shouldn't be too many people there, I'd probably have the place all to myself, right? Apparently today was the day every hyperactive-sugar-high-loud whiny child came to the zoo. The parking lot was full, the line was long. So rather than torture myself, I decided to go down to the river instead. I had a lovely, quiet time in the sun. And the seagulls cooperated with some nice poses.
They loved these pylons. There was a gull on just about every one.
This one is contemplating the fast traffic on the freeway.
