Jonathan Livingston Seagull

By Imagephotographics
Afternoon everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on my last Thundercat image - most appreciated !

Here are a few seagull shots caught on Saturday whilst the Thundercat Team were having their lunch break. A common enough bird, but thought I'd share this sequence of shots with you anyway !

Hope you like them !

Thre super shots with V2 getting my vote as it really captures the mood of his thoughts in the book( one of my all time favourites ) this really shows that soaring for freedom by the gull.
