Yes... graceful indeed. Also great birds for clean up food that us humans discard.

yes indeed; great tracking of this gull in flight Brian. I have great difficulty trying to do that

I'm seriously coveting your camera, but I suspect I need your skills more! When I track a bird in flight I get blur, swish, blur. It's kinda pathetic, actually.

Superb flight shots Brian. Definitely an area I'm working on in my own photography.

So many people dislike Seagulls but I think they are graceful looking. They can be a bit of a bother when having a picnic around them though. Loved your shots.
