Pretty Preening Seagull by AuntDot

Pretty Preening Seagull by 

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/800s, f/6.8, ISO 100, focal length 90mm; AUTO setting

The lowly seagull is quite a pretty bird when you look at it closely. I always took them for granted. This one was on a post near a beach on Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin, Florida, USA.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
