The Ring-billed Gull is one of the most common Gulls in North American. As such, it gets ignored as a photographic subject (I know I tend to ignore them all the time). However, sometimes it pays to try something even with such a common species. I tried to get as close as I could to this resting Gull. The lighting was also a little flat day (lots of clouds) so I positioned myself to try and get as interesting a background as possible.
