So how does this sound?  Cool ocean breeze?  A lone majestic bird gliding over the foaming shores of New England? Maybe a tall white and black lighthouse standing quietly on the distant jetty?

This seagull was not gliding upon the currents of a cool ocean breeze to decorate the morning sky behind a postcard-perfect lighthouse.  No.  This winged-rat was one of many filthy little buggers that were swarming and dive bombing my kids and me as we shared a bag of Doritos chips on a warm, muggy, Florida day.  I’m telling you those birds would sell their own mother into slavery if it meant getting a morsel of Doritos.  I took lots of shots to finally get one with just a single bird in it.  All the other shots looked like a brutal aerial feeding frenzy.  Isn’t it amazing how different the reality of an image can be from our first impressions?

Technical Details:

Nikon D100 with Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 and a Nikon SB-80DX Speedlight (Nikon’s word for flash).
