Fishing Day 2 | Travel Photography | Wildlife | Leesburg, VA Photographer

Fishing day 2 was more fishing and a little wildlife watching on my part.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day. . .

This first shot was of Wally, the owner’s 1-year old lab.  I’m always amazed at how quickly dogs can figure out who will play with them and who will ignore them.  Wally was not lacking in the playmate department this week.

Play time?

This next shot was unique for me in the fact that I’ve always seen a ton of gulls (think they refer to them as River Gulls since the closest ocean is a looooong way away).  But I had never seen any gull nests, let alone, a gull sitting on her nest.

And lastly, we found this young bald eagle flying around the lake near the lodge.  He wasn’t very happy that the gull was crowding his airspace though.

Outta my way!

All secure, move along.
