Loafing at parks, swarming over lakes, and roosting atop floodlights, Ring-billed Gulls are a familiar sight to many Americans. Industrial farming practices, the proliferation of open garbage dumps, and the end of human persecution in the 1920s have allowed this “land gull” to thrive across most of North America over the last 40 years. Many bird watchers begin to learn the fine details of gull identification by observing the cosmopolitan and obliging Ring-billed Gull. I was heading up the ramp to the beach on the boardwalk in Atlantic City when I saw these guys just chilling on the railing waiting for scraps. They posed real nice.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
