Perfect composition of these in-flight birds coming together. Love the way the backlighting highlights the subject as well. Hmmmw..looks like they got a prize too. *S*

Nick, you capture seagulls like no one else! In your eyes these common birds turn into ballerinas, graceful in flight and so beautiful to see! Another fantastic capture indeed! Looooove that lighting!!

Exceptional shot! I'd hesitate to suggest there was some luck involved when blotting out the sun as these 3 birds scuffle over a tender morsel. You have a fantastic, once in a lifetime shot here...that is, in my estimation, but as I look through your gallery I'm not totally convinced that YOU won't have more.
