Taking a Chance?

By SteveMoulding  
I've called this 'Taking a Chance' for two reasons.
1. These Gulls were following our boat taking a chance that we would offer them a tasty snack from our picnic.
2. This image is straight from the camera, not cropped or adjusted, and a bit abstract. I'm not sure that many people will like it, so I'm taking a chance.
Oh and by the way they did get fed, taking titbits from our hands whilst gliding in the air currents. When you watch them like this, they are so nimble and graceful, something you don't really notice until times like this.
Any way, if it crashes and burns so beit.
Have a great week.

ps. It was taken off the coast of Teneriffe last February.

It works well because of the composition, some fine detail in the bottom gull and good colour. Gary
