Default Pinned!

Two gulls (Laughing Gulls, I think) fighting over low tide turf. I was taking pictures of a Mallard pair when I heard the screaming. It was loud and vicious.
This was taken handheld with an FZ40, set at 7mp, zoom fully extended to 1124 in 35mm equivalent, so not as sharp as I'd like.

Indeed! A fantastic shot to catch this action; not any room for improvement, as far as I can see!
