A Watery Landing: for Watery Wednesday


I thought these photos of this gull coming in for a landing fit in well with the theme of Watery Wednesday. Although this might look warm, it was in reality a cold, blustery day at Saints Rest Marsh, along the Bay of Fundy in Saint John. My appreciative thanks to 2sweetnsaxy for hosting this meme.

Love the shot with his feet hanging down, ready to land and the tail all flaired out. Perfect capture! The color combo is great. I hope it quits raining today so I can get out and take photos!

Nice photos. I am just starting out with bird photography and finding it very difficult to capture those types of shots. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful capture! Look how small the "shoulder" joint really is! And I give him a "10" on the landing - perfect entry, no splash...

Awesome shots! It's not that easy to catch them landing. I'm never ready for it. :-)

I love pictures of birds in flight Ann. Yours of this Gull is fabulous!
You're right it does look warm in the photo.

Great shots! Love the colors of the brown grass with the blue blue water. Such a performer, this gull is.
