Juvenile Sabine’s Gull from Saturday’s pelagic trip out of Half Moon Bay. I think the juveniles are even more beautiful than the spectacular adults. The delicate scalloped pattern on the mouse-gray back is not visible until you are quite close, so I chose to de-emphasize it. Foreshortening wings is about the most difficult thing for me, but I’m happy with the result. The portrait was done with a number of photos for reference.
