Not the greatest but thought them worth sharing. Two different dives. As you can see, the gull got better the second time and posed more properly so he is sharper. He was fetching rocks off the sandbar.

Thanks Rafael. Indeed an interesting pose. He looks embedded in the sand although I know he is not.

I like #2 Steve. I clear and sharp and a very interesting pose. You said it was fetching rocks? What does it do with them?

It lifted them up, flew a little ways, dropped them, went up and then dove down after them just like a tern does. It usually came up with a different rock though.
Thanks for looking and commenting.

Thanks for looking and commenting Mark, Ted and Emmanuel. Glad you liked the shots. Number 2 is my favorite also but I still had to post one just for the sequence effect.

Before they dive for the rock they spend a long time selecting the perfect one.
