Feathery Friday – Portrait of a Western Gull

These gull are EVERYWHERE along the water in California and aren’t really afraid of people. That’s not to say that they won’t fly away from you if you venture too close but unlike some other birds that will take flight if you even get out of your car (I’m talking about your Red-tailed Hawk) but you can get fairly close.

This one was standing on the pier on a grey and gloomy day when I inched my way closer to get a shot. I opted to crop it further to give a better view of the feathers and eyes. But make no mistake, I am still leery of gulls due to my fear of them from the movie The Birds. Guess it wasn’t feeling too animated and I was feeling a bit brave.

ps. Looks like I was able to get a FF post in this week after all 😊
