Great shot! Some have tufts and some don't ... I love the wave and the birds taking off! Why weren't they bothering anyone ... didn't you bring them any french fries?
Thanks Nawitka! Actually the title was more in the spirit of "...so why did someone have to come along and bother them?"
Wow, the nonbothersome seagull ... what a rare species!
Yes, a new discovery I have documented here! I'll be rich! Ryan
That's a wonderful composition, Ryan! The lighting is just beautiful and I love the wave and the seagulls - especially the one you caught in flight - and the pattern of the sand! A big bright golden star for this one! Greetings, Anne
Thank you very much, Anne! It wasn't hard to catch them in flight, since someone I know put them in flight by getting too close. :) Ryan
I see, but still it's a great shot! I've never been able to capture a bird in flight so far. Cheers, Anne
Anne, I think the key is to get to the spot where the birds take off, or else the spot where they will eat, and just wait. Usually they fly much too high, so you want to get a good view of the places where they aren't so high for a while. Cheers, Ryan
Great shot Ryan...I like the waves and the seagulls in this wonderfull light..:D Congratulations.
Excellent photo, Ryan! You caught perfect flight at the perfect moment. FYI, I think the reason these 'seagulls' were not bothering anyone is because they are not seagulls but terns, which feed exclusively on fish, and don't eat garbage or refuse the way gulls do. The exact species is most likely Royal Tern
Thanks MJ and Eve! And thanks for the information, Eve. I had been wondering why I kept seeing two different kinds of seagulls, and what the difference was. So it turns out one is not a seagull at all!
Hola Ryan, me gustó mucho esta foto a orillas del mar. Un saludo desde Chile, Claudia.
Gracias por visitarme, Claudia! Cómo estás? Un saludo para ti también. Ryan
Once again, one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen! :)
I'm happy to bring you a piece of your old home, Linda. :)
As you've already learned most of the birds in your picture are terns. Nice shot.
