I shot this photo of this beautiful Herring Gull during the 2nd week in December.  It was flying over Barnegat Bay in Seaside Park, NJ.

It was COLD! And I forgot to bring my gloves with me – brrr!

It was worth aching hands to get to see this magnificent bird.

In previous years I would barely pay attention to gulls.  I thought of ’em as all just pesky shore birds that wanted to steal my boardwalk fries (and they will!).

They truly are beautiful.  I especially love how the light shines through his largest feathers on his wings.
