I Am Upset with You

Great Black-backed Gull – Larus marinus

This past Tuesday, May 7 we went to Jenney Pond. I was observing and photographing a Great Egret – Ardea alba at Jenney Pond fishing. What was strange, the great egret was fishing for fry even though there were schools of herring all around and swimming right by the egret’s feet.

A flight of gulls swarmed overhead, 2 Great Black-backed Gulls – Larus marinus landed on a muddy island in the center of the pond. I was hoping that they would go and start to feed on the herring. However, the 2 gulls after laying down in the mud began a fight. I captured a series of 20 images of that encounter.

In the develop module of Lightroom, I first utilized autosync so all the images would be close to the process. The images were then exported to Photoshop, where using one of the pictures I created an action so all the other models would be processed the same. I used batch automation with the action set that I created
