Hi Marie, Gene, Charlene, Terry, Robin, Shirley, Bonnie, Stephen, Susan, Colette, Darren, and Carol!

Good Morning!
Thanks so much for the great comments ~ I snapped this one quickly and didn't have time to step back and get the 'suicidal' gull in better focus but thought it was funny anyway -- I'm glad it raised a smile or two!!
Cheers, Susie

Hey Susie - have you ever had about 80 comments for any other one of your photographs?!! VERY well captured - you can be in the right place at the right time sometimes, can't you...with your finger on the shutter, and the lens focussed ready to 'shoot' - LOL?!

I LOVE the way the other gull is 'blowing off steam' too - there always seems to be a few noisy, greedy ones in any flock of seagulls I've found! It is really difficult to 'catch' seagulls just as they are taking off like that, so you did extremely well Susie! Sorry I missed this one earlier, but very sincere congratulations on your second placing with it in March - it was richly deserved! Keep that camera at the ready, won't you?!!

Best regards... Carolyn

Hi Carolyn, thanks so much for your comments and congrats! Yes, it is often a question of being in the right place at the right time~ I think the reason I like to shoot animals/birds is their very unpredictability~ you never know what you you might be lucky enough to capture.. I can't wait to download after a day out shooting.. talk about an addict.. LOL!! Cheers to you, Susie

Your photo came up on the contest page this morning... it was the first time I've seen it Susan! It gave me a good laugh to start my day! Sometimes the name of a photo can add a new dimension to what you are seeing. Your clever title certainly brought a whole other element to this one! Congratulations on your win! : )

Susie, I love this great moment frozen in time to make this such a terrific image. The humor portrayed along with the action, really fits the title too. So funny and a great image, with a well deserved WIN!!!
