If I weren't so gullible, I'd say that you have a way with gulls. I keep trying. I talk to them, ask them nicely to sit up straight, hint that I'll give them a piece of fish if they behave...but nothing works. They just go poop and fly away!

These are really good profiles. Similar but different. I keep trying to pick a favorite but the truth is thaI like each one.

What does a gull say? I know it's not "Quack, quack!" Cute photos!

Each has a distinct personality. They all seem to have a sense of humor. Good shots, VP.

Hmmm. One gull is posing nicely but the other two are playing hard to get. Although I live inland, seagulls live here too especially close to fast food places that serve French fries. ;-)

Greetings from Australia.
I like these photos - the birds certainly look regal.
Cheers.

Maybe a GULL PORTRAIT SERIES is in the making? Great shots. How did you do that?

Nice captures! I wonder if your gulls are the same as ours or different. Pretty!

Such sharp, clear portraits! Good job!

Jilly said...

What great shots. I love them all but particularly the first with that beautiful rusty colour base the bird is standing on. Can't work out what that is. A tree? If so, what a colour?

Very nice series of portraits. Gulls are like pigeons though. But noisier.

These birds are skinnier compares to Montreal gulls. They're all fat and fluffy.

Kate said...

Altho those birds leave a dirty mess behind them, they are lovely looking creatures. They pose very well for you! PS. Still not back permanently. Stay happy while I'm on sabbatical.

Ellie said...

Did you hypnotize those - how did you make the pose so nicely?

Andreea said...

Sharp portraits, they do look like they're posing.

JM said...

All shots are great!

@ Jacob - I've been pooped a couple of times, but never inside the harbor. Some kind of truce?
@ Jilly - It is the bulbous bow of a ship.
@ richard - Incredible! Did you shoot it?

Jacob said...

I think it's your eyes! You have them mesmerized!

The gulls are great. I especially like the water and the old metal in the first one.
