Gulls in Autumn.

We sat and watched the gulls today in Colorado’s wonderful golden light. It was a great autumn day in my neck of the woods. The gulls were doing some fishing as I was trying to get some good images of a few Buffleheads that have made their way into town. My focus immediately shifted to … Continue reading Gulls in Autumn.

Friends.

Is it just me, or do all Mallards seem to be friends? They hang out together, fly together, live together, swim in the same lake and there is always constant chatter.
