|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|“Free” is the name of this photograph and it was taken on a visit to Topsail Beach. The gulls were numerous as the picnickers started eating on the beach. It was a great opportunity to catch some fast action shots. |
These three gulls were carefully eyeing the food hoping that some kind individual would share lunch with them. Fortunately some people did and as a result more gulls quickly appeared.
Without realizing it, I took over 100 to a shots and probably got at least ten to twelve good ones. This is one of those, at least in my opinion.
This closest gull appeared different, darker than the rest, I think is of a different subspecies. It may be an Icelandic gull.
The photograph was slightly cropped, level adjusted, and saved for the web.

Your in flight shot of the Gull is executed perfectly. It seems to me that you were flying near this gull. Great colours and details, cropping and exposure. Perfect done and TFS.
very good shot of this flying gull.
It's a juvenile of American Herring gull ( Larus smithsonianus).
