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
