There are still a few seagulls, ducks, geese and swans lingering along the shore. Most have flown south to warmer waters, but there are stragglers.
Last year, the seagulls never totally left the area - the water stayed free, so they didn't have to go elsewhere to find food. I liked the look of this gull, with its gray wings blending with the color of the bay on a cloudy day.
This swan captured my attention because the blueish-gray shadows along its wings and the white of its back somehow matched the mood of the bay with a little bit of light coming through the clouds and reflecting off the surface of the ripples in the water.
I know, I know - I'm easily entertained!
