Suspended



Maybe I cheated a bit with this post. It isn't about the sky as much as what is in the sky.

  3. superbe cette mouette qui plane, on dirait qu'elle est en chasse et qu'elle surveille en dessous d'elle.
    haughtiness this sea gull which glides, they would say that it is in hunt and that it watches underneath her.

  4. Olivier, this gull was indeed hunting. My grandson was throwing Cheerios to them and they kept coming in closer to grab them.

  5. The gull does indeed seem suspended. Nice photo. Bet your grandson was tickled to have the gulls at his beck and call.. until the Cheerios ran out, anyway.

  6. Enticing them with food is the only way to get a nice pic. A little while ago Iwe were camping somewhere and the gulls kept circling overhead. I stood there how long with my camera pointing skyward to get a good shot. Eventially had my head turning but I persisted.

  10. If you weren't "skywatching" you would never have captured this!

    I LOVE it!!! I think some of the best shots are looking up and looking down, rather than just looking around.
