On one of my typical Sunday morning trips out to Miami's South Beach I found this juvenile gull drying his wings with the same beautiful sunlight that I did to make this photograph. I cropped and adjusted the image using Apple's IPhoto. Enjoy and remember........... the best things in life really are free :-)

Great capture, Michael, and a wonderful light! You are right, the best things in life are free! Right now I'm enjoying a beautiful winter scene through my kitchen window, with all the snow on the tree branches. I'm kind of tired of winter, but have to admit it's beautiful, too. #879490
