Yellow-Legged Gull at Dumbarton Bridge

Yellow-Legged Gull at Dumbarton Bridge
Self Challenge: Take a photo every day in June, and use a different lens each day.

13. Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L USM

The yellow-legged gull is a large gull, though the size does vary, with the smallest females being scarcely larger than a common gull and the largest males being roughly the size of a great black-backed gull. Adults are externally similar to herring gulls but have yellow legs. They have a grey back, slightly darker than herring gulls but lighter than lesser black-backed gulls. They have a red spot on the bill as adults, like the entire complex. There is a red ring around the eye like in the lesser black-backed gull but unlike in the herring gull which has a dark yellow ring. Quoted from Wikipedia

I think the fence is merely suffering from chipped paintwork. Thanks for your very kind comment, Léopold. Cheers, Joe

Lovely focusing Joe. The gulls must wonder where everyone disappeared to recently! This one was probably delighted to see you! A very good portrait. Cheers, Rosa.

This gull didn't seem to mind me photographing it. They usually fly off when someone comes along the riverside walkway. Thanks for your very kind comment, Rosa. Cheers, Joe

This gull is probably thinking, "Where's my chips?" I suspect it is a scavenger just like its cousins. ;-)
