Deerfield Beach, Florida, December 2007 [Click to enlarge its wingspan]
Anyone who's followed my adventures for any length of time knows that I'm somewhat fascinated by flight. I often take pictures of airplanes (see here, here and here) and, when I need more natural inspiration, I turn my lens on birds (here, here and here).
So when we went to the beach to soak in a little sand, salt water and hideous-looking people in hideous-looking swimwear (more pictures on that front soon), I found solace in this feathered fellow who almost seemed to pose for me as he (she? Anyone know how to gender-identify a gull?) flew past.
Your turn: What's going through the mind of this bird? Have fun with it...
