This is an excellent 'capture'. However there is nothing in the pic to give an idea of the size of the bird.! What is making it to take this action so well caught?

Jim, well the story is that I live near the ocean and there is alot of seagulls here. You just have to have a picknick on the beach and sometimes they get very close. I love these birds and I just have to photograph them when they are in action. Thank you for your comment! :o) #1152779
