Herring Gulls are large birds, not shy of humans, and easy to photograph. I saw the ones below on the shore of Chincoteague Bay on Assateague Island in Maryland. The younger ones were flying back and forth, while two adults stood and rested not far from where I was.

Herring Gull:”Did you see my baby fly?”

“There he goes? Isn’t he handsome?”

She: “Junior does quite well by himself, right dear?” He: “Just as you said, dear.”
