Taken this sunday at my local park. A kid was feeding the gulls. Sun was setting behind the hills. I took some shots for practice. This one is one of the best ones.

Almost full-frame, resized. Some crop from the bottom as I couldn't get him in the center of the frame.

Very nicely done. Exposure on those white birds can be hard.

Just shows you that even a common "booring" bird can be made interesting.

I'll echo the others and say great shot too, Bobby! The bird almost looks like it got ready for your shot by putting on lipstick...

Bobby, these birds can be really hard to catch in flight as they dart and change directions very quickly. You really caught this one. Nice shot.
