I had heard there were five or six species of gulls on the Rock River near Rock Falls, IL so I went to Lawrence park to try to photograph some. Unfortunately, there isn't a place to get very close to them. I picked this one because I like the way the back lighting shines through the feathers but otherwise I'm a little disappointed with my trip to the park.
On another note. I'm not sure what happened to Blogger's dynamic view templates. Mine isn't working so I had to change the design. I hope to get it back to the "magazine" format soon.
