I was photographing a bunch of seagulls today as they hung around a local river. Several people walking along the shore path were tossing food to them so there was a lot of birds really close. Got several good images of gulls in flight and a few of two mallard ducks chasing each other around. One good set I made was a lone seagull bathing out in the river. You'd think birds that are around water all the time wouldn't need to worry about bathing but gotta keep those feathers clean and shiny. To watch them it feels like the cleaning I would get just standing in the shower and letting the water run over me but I'm sure they make it work. Since there is still ice at the river's edge it must be a cold bath!
