Acadia Great Black-backed Gull

Great Black-backed Gull

Just got back from Acadia National Park on Mt. Desert Island, ME. Here's a Great-Black-backed Gull that was lounging on one of the many pink granite blocks at the pull-out viewing areas. This gull did not mind people at all. I had to back way up to take the photos with a telephoto lens. Acadia is full of Great Black-backed Gulls, our largest NA gull and very handsome. Such a treat to see so many of them.
More on our trip coming soon. We had a great time.

I'll be in New Hampshire this week and look forward to seeing this gull again! Staring at Ring-bills all day can make you forget how big gulls can get! Great photos.
