Ring-Billed Gull On Ice

I photographed this Ring-billed Gull (2nd Winter plumage) as it was foraging for food on the ice at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, in Oceanville NJ. This series was from a few years ago. I am cleaning / organizing my arrays of hard disks to remove files to free up more storage space. I liked the featured image because the Gull looked like it was lonely on it’s own little ice island. It then continued to move around the ice behind the small ice island looking for food. I usually do not photograph Gulls, but thought this Gull was interesting because of the ice and the little ice island in the clear water. All images taken with 400mm Canon f/4 DO lens.

This ice almost looks like the gull is walking on water

    • Thanks Belinda! While I was watching he did not find anything. But it was interesting to watch the gull try to find something out on the ice.
