The Dingle Penninsula

A fine looking Irish Herring Gull perched along the misty cliffs of the beautiful Dingle Peninsula in Ireland. I was surprised how close I was able to get to this bird. View On Black

 

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology provides this descriptor "The Herring Gull is the quintessential basic "seagull," with no distinctive characters that immediately set it apart from other gull species. The characteristic gull of the North Atlantic."

 

(I am awaiting the arrival of Lightroom 3 before continuing with my images from China.)
