After a stressful work week, I signed up for a Photo Safari to Kenya and invested in a new telephoto lens. One of the trip leaders recommend I take it to Occoquan to try it out because of all their birds. I didn’t have plans to, but then on a Saturday when I couldn’t run because I was injured I decided to venture out. It turns out I am now officially obsessed with birds. Between the 2309432 duck photos I took in New Zealand and these, I can’t deny it (no shame). There was one seagull with a TON of personality that was just fascinating to watch. I sent the featured photo to my coworkers as a joke about how I hope their day wasn’t going like that and got some pretty funny responses.
