Gulls are not noted for their beauty, but on my recent trip to Newport I discovered they come in various colors and sizes. The brown gulls that predominated when I was there have substantial markings and a rather beautiful tail. Here is a pic that shows that all is not plain white and grey in gullsville. Shot with my D50/Sigma 70-300 APO combo at 1/2000s. f/5.6. 270.0mm. ISO not recorded but probably ISO400 or 800 (note the late evening light).
