Photographer's Note

"Gull 1 to tow..." - an air traffic controllers nightmare.
Look closely at this photo and count the seagulls in this near disaster in the air. At first I thought there were only two, but on closer inspection it turned out to be a bunch of 3 gulls, all wanting to occupy the same bit of airspace at the same time. I simply don't know how they managed to get out of this fix, by use of excellent flying skills, probably. At any rate, no gull fell down into the water, they all made it out of there safely and lived to find another piece of bread ;-))
I know this photo is not perfect. For one, only the bird nearest to the camera is entirely within the DOF range. Secondly, there are some hot spots on parts of the birds, and thirdly a combination of birds outside the DOF range and motion blur, which all combine to make this photo less than perfect. But for all that I think it compensates by being rather funny.
Treatment: Crop, contrast +10, saturation +10, USM and resize.
