There are several Bonaparte’s Gulls that have been hanging around the rte 417 bridge over Lake Jesup. This morning I drove by there on my way into work, and three of them were hanging around Overlook Park. A couple of them were flying circles around pier where I was standing. One in particular was very interested in making sure it looked good for the camera and decided to fix its feathers while flying so that it would be in perfect form for me. He also flew up a little stream so that I could photograph it with a green background–I don’t get many gull shots with a green background behind them.
