Water Birds & Reflections

Bonaparte gull and reflection

Three reflection shots this week, all of birds in water.

Yep, I agree that the water sure is bright and shiny in this photo!  Bonapartes are sweet little gulls, not like the noisy, bossy ring-billed gulls that are common here.

Black tern and reflection

Black terns are not at all common here so I was excited when I saw this one resting on a rock.

Great blue heron and reflection

Great blue herons are quite common this time of year...but I still like to photograph them.
