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.

Thank you Jientje. I had a great time catching these. I posted late this evening so the masses of commenters haven't been by yet ;o)

Oh you're getting spectacular! I missed these earlier when I was snooping around. It isn't just the sharpness, it's your eye for composition. I am enjoying your photo blog so much.

FABULOUS! The first one takes my breath away! I love the one of the gull contemplating the traffic, I do that as well! LOL. Sometimes I wish I were a bird. :) Great, great, great captures!

Always, Carly
