Wild Bird Wednesday 362 - The Gathering

These Silver Gulls (Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae) were gathered on the wharf as we came in from the Whale Watching trip.  I rather liked the way they were lined up on the metal rails.







Just for a bit of a change, I converted one one the image to black and white - I think these pictures suit that process.


As I mentioned last week, I will be up to my eyes in work this week - but with luck I may get to see a few birds in the off work hours.  There is always hope!

As ever, you can join in with WBW by clicking on the link below - and also as ever, please feel free to share the love for WBW with other bloggers!  Cheers. SM

I especially liked the monochrome version. I must try that more often as it can be very effective. Will drop by later to link up.

The way they all line up facing the same direction makes one wonder what do they know is coming from that direction?

The last one is good too, in a different way.

I do like gulls... and the Aussie Silver Gulls are so delicate compared to the hulking great Herring and Black-backs round here!!! YAM xx

Yes I must remember myself to convert some of my images to B & W as I do that your conversion. Thanks for hosting and have a good week. I am in Scotland at present.

Your shots are great...seagulls are not my favourite birds, though.
Have a great week!

Nice setting for the gulls, it is interesting when animals align like that. Best of luck with your busy week!

Gulls are serious narcissists. Will pose for hours.

You captured a nice series of pictures with the gulls.

Linda said...

I prefer the color in this case, because the blues are so gorgeous!

I find black and white photos always look more artsy. Gulls are pretty ubiquitos where I come from Newfoundland and Labrador. Their calls can still take me back.

Great photo of the line of gulls. I know I'm having a great day when I see plenty of gulls. A.K.A. Beach!

With gatherings of gulls, it's very hard to spot any oddish looking ones. I've spent many an hour ......
