Depth of Field

If it seems as though I'm posting a lot of bird photos lately, it's because Jon was on spring break, and I tagged along on some of his day trips as he stalked birds all over northern Illinois.

This image of a ring-billed gull seemed perfect for the theme of depth of field. He posed for me near a pond at Lincoln Park Zoo.

  1. What a poser...nothing like having a model bird who poses on command! Very nice capture!

  6. Not that I know anything about birds...but it looks like a young bird, and there's something contemplative about it.

  8. Nice DOF indeed, and this is one clean and bright gull! He must not have a blue collar job to dirty those clean feathers.

  9. So well shot! I'm not a birder bur have heard that gulls can be really hard to identify what with variations and juvenile forms etc.

  11. Looks like he's contemplating where his next snack is coming from.
