Lookin’ for a Handout
This Herring Gull flew in and landed right next to our car just as we stopped for a “Kodak Moment” at a scenic overlook in Acadia National Park. Sorry to disappoint the gull, but no handouts. But it must have thought the camera and lens might have some food in there somewhere. I walked all the way around the gull, taking numerous images trying to get the best light. I even got closer, but nothing seemed to phase this gull. Its not very often a bird lets you get this close, so I took advantage of the opportunity. After a couple of dozen images, it was time to move on.
