Project 52 – No. 45. Ring-billed Gull

8 08 2010

Today, we took the ferry back to Kingston from Glenora after visiting Prince Edward County. It was a rainy day, although I did get some nice photos around PEC. This one is of a Ring-billed Gull (Larus delawarensis) greeting the ferry pulling in. Along with its cousin, the herring gull, those are very common bird species around the lower Great Lakes.

This photograph appealed to me due to its geometry and the way the gull’s beak and legs matched the yellow fence.  The very overcast sky and the dripping water droplets off the fence, along with the alertness of the bird as it inspected the ferry, combined for a painterly image.
