Mew Gulls (Larus canus) 2-20110619

Mew Gulls were nesting on the gravel bars in the river. This pair was courting (I had to shoot through the window of the bus, so the image is not as crisp as it should be, but I loved the pose and back-lighting). We took the wildlife tour bus 17 miles into Denali National Park, Alaska, before preparing to drive 400 miles down to Soldotna.
