Algarve and the Yellow Legged Gull

At last Spring has arrived, but it still doesn't look much like Spring here. We needed the rain after last years drought, but now after several months of it, I long for the rain to stop, so...I can get outside and take some photos. In the meantime, as I still have photos from the Algarve, here are a few shots of the Yellow Legged Gull.

Great series of images of the Yellow-legged Gull. I hope the rain stops for you soon, so that you are not restricted to staying indoors all the time. From drought to deluge is not quite what you were hoping for!

What a pretty fellow this gull is! I love the close-up shots! Rain never seems to come in just the right amount ... there is always either too much or not enough. Hope you get outdoors soon, but meanwhile your memory posts are wonderful -- thanks for sharing your great visit .

I am enjoying your photos! Thanks to Sandra for introducing me to your blog. Portugal is special to me because my only overseas trip was to visit Portugal in 2001. So much history and beauty there.
