Lunch Break....

Yesterday at lunch, I grabbed my camera gear and headed down the street to a retention pond about two blocks from work. I was a beautiful day, for February, and I was hoping to get some photos of the local waterfowl. I unloaded my gear once I arrived and placed my Nikkor 70-300mm VR lens to the D80. A short walk later, I was at the waters edge snapping photos of various geese, ducks, and gulls. I forgot to put my circular polarizer on the lens so I ended up with a lot of unwanted reflection on the water. Other than that, I had a nice time and caught a few good photos. I only spent about 30 minutes out there but it was very enjoyable. I think I will be doing that more often.

I see those Gulls over at the WalMart on Admiral & Memorial. I used to like in So. Calif and everytime we would go to the beach they were everywhere ! So was their droppings, yuk. They were also inland all the into San Bernadino, Mts. around the campgrounds, lakes etc. Are these Gulls of the same family as the Sea Gulls at the coasts?

I'm not sure if they are or not. They sure look like some of the gulls I've seen on the coast.
