I had the pleasure of spending some time at one of my favourite photography spots,St.Vital Park in Winnipeg.I have taken countless pictures at this park over the last several years,but I always find more to photograph each time I go there.
Ring-billed Gulls are willing to get their picture taken,especially when you throw out some sort of food.
In this picture I liked the green and red reflection behind the gull. I have no idea what this was,as I didn't notice it until the picture was on the computer.
This one is just taking off.You can tell by the action of the water. The depression caused by the feet on take-off really caught my eye.I also like the wings here and the spray of water. the action of the water.
This gull had just landed and I caught him with the wings still slightly raised.
I was taking pictures of the gulls,but I am always drawn to the way the water looks on each picture.Often this is something I don't see until I have the picture on the computer.
This Canada Goose is on final approach for a landing.I liked how the body is stretched out to make that perfect touch-down.
And we have touch-down.He seems to be sliding on the water.It all looks so effortless.
The action is so fast that I have a hard time keeping up with it.
The one thing I can be sure about is that if I didn't get the right shot this time,the birds will be there again the next time and I can keep on trying.This is just one more reason to get out there again.
