Gull cruises shoreline

I was attracted to the bright greens and yellows of a massive rock just off the south shore of Fidalgo Island at Deception Pass. When this seagull cruised by below me, I panned right to keep him in focus in a low light situation. A Pacific Northwest scene, to be sure.

Prepare for landing

My presence on the beach prompted airborne antics among several seagulls including this one, who opted for a new perch a bit further from the photographer.

What a joy this morning to watch seagulls soaring above the house, billowy white clouds and blue skies as a background.

Got yer back

“I got yer back,” this seagull appears to be saying as he peeks over his shoulder from a perch on the head of the “Lady of the Sea” sculpture at Seafarers’ Memorial in downtown Anacortes.

Perch and soar

If you look close you’ll see not only a seagull, but a blue heron perched on the rocks on a lazy Deception Pass morning. The birds’ playground was the swirling water just a few hundred yards east of the bridge.

Cove construction

And you should see the view looking the opposite direction. This photo was taken at Sunset Cove, located just outside the entrance to the city’s beautiful Washington Park. Condos and homes wrapped around a cul de sac with a killer view of the San Juans. Oh, the seagull’s not the plaster version. I think there […]

Sunset silouette

Cap Sante is always a beautiful vantage point to look down on the city, but it is particularly inviting this time of year, as evidenced by this evening image. Good weather brings people, who in turn attract seagulls in search of snacks. More than one of my photographs included friendly gulls sweeping past … probably […]

Turf issues

I was at Cap Sante Boat Haven Thursday evening when I noticed a bald eagle sweeping past. On his tail were two or three seagulls, apparently upset about the eagle’s presence. The eagle took a perch atop the mast of a commercial vessel, and one of the seagulls continued a harassment flight pattern for a […]

Greeter gull

If you like seagulls, you’ll enjoy a trip on the Washington State Ferries. It is not uncommon to find seagulls cruising along with ferries as they make their way to and from the islands. Gulls are part of your “welcoming committee” too, as was the case last weekend with this gull, watching the action from […]

Not a duck

This beach party was a ducks only affair. Just ask the gull behind the rock, who never seemed able to close the distance between himself and the rest of the gang.

Hunkered down

Seagulls generally fly away when approached, unless there are french fries involved. I didn’t have fries with me, but this guy was hunkered down against the cold wind and didn’t intend to move on unless absolutely necessary. On top of irritating weather, the gull had a pesky feather stuck to his beak. Maybe a dip […]

Lone gull faces the elements

I’m not sure where seagulls seek sanctuary from the elements, but this lone gull chose to brave the wind and rain on a recent afternoon at Washington Park. Incidentally, the change in weather has had a marked effect on the volume of pedestrian traffic at the popular park. In other words, it’s a great season […]
