As I was out enjoying a beautiful Sunday morning, I noticed this ring-billed gull preparing to land on a thin layer of ice. Through my camera lens I noticed that it was missing a leg. Despite its disability, this gull was able to land gracefully.

These beautiful birds were sporting their red on a snowy Valentine’s Day!
I do not like winter, and I have never been one to shy away from voicing my opinion. My idea of a perfect day is sunny, 80 degrees, and no wind. Mid-west Februarys are nothing like that! However, thanks to a good friend of mine, I have learned to enjoy a cold sunny day in winter….I go to LeClaire, Iowa to photograph eagles. I can’t say that it is better than a warm summer day, but it certainly does make winter a little easier to tolerate;-)

Life took over the past few weeks. Between home improvement projects, hanging out with my grandchildren, and a variety of other commitments, I haven’t had many opportunities to get out with my camera. Yesterday with the sun shining I decided to take a few photos of the birds at my feeder. The dark-eyed juncos were the main attraction and they were more than happy to pose for me. I thought that this shot made a very good black and white photo.
