While the kids went paddling in the sea on a recent trip to the beach, I had fun taking photos of the seagulls - this is my favourite action shot because you get all the different poses : standing on the sand, taking off and landing.
The one on the left looked like it had been fighting with its cronies and was sporting a black eye !
Incoming seagull at 10 paces !
There were so many that at times, it looked like a scene out of Hitchcok's The Birds.
All they were interested in was people's picnics though.
Having been brought up in a seaside town, I've always known that seagulls circling in the sky is a sign that a storm is on the way - looking at the sky here, I think they must be right.
