The background gulls almost look like wing walkers in an aerial show!

Wow! Beautiful flight picture AND landing picture! The wings are very pretty with those black and white tips and they show so well against that background. I love the spread out tail on the landing gull....a perfect fan! You are very skillful on catching these moments.

I never thought of that, but you're right!! Thanks for the mention of it :-)

Sometimes I just like to catch birds in the air and I'm often never sure of what I've got until I download the pics afterwards.

Even though some people think gulls are pesty, they are quite beautiful when they're flying and I think fun to watch hanging around on the ground too.

I always am attracted to seeing larger birds in flight, and in this case I like the dark, woodsy background which really sets it off well. Thanks for your comment.
