|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This shot was taken during the ferry to and from Alcatraz. These birds follow the boat all the way, and you can get great shots with the bay area as the backdrop.|
The California Gull Larus californicus is a medium-sized gull, smaller than the Herring Gull but larger than the Ring-billed Gull.
These birds forage in flight or pick up objects while swimming, walking or wading. They mainly eat insects, fish and eggs. They also scavenge at garbage dumps or docks. They may follow plows in fields for insects stirred up by this activity.

Very nice composition. Sharpness is good. Beautiful blue sky compared to our sordid grey sky today.

Thanks for your last comments about «Quiet Moment»
This picture is really beautifully done!!!
Fantastic colours and excellent contrast. We can see clearly feathers under wings against blue and clear sky! A great shot my friend!
My best regards,
