“Stealth” is the name of this photograph and it was taken on a picnic at Topsail Beach. As we were sharing our lunch with the birds, this gull came in low and very quietly to claim a piece of our lunch. I quickly grabbed my camera which was around my neck and took several shots in action mode to try and capture his fast movement.
These apparently hungry birds seem to enjoy our picnic as much as we did.
This photograph was level adjusted; smart sharpened and saved for the web.

In my eyes, there is nothing that could have been done better with this. Good job getting the bird that sharp. Congratulations.

Cool photo with a "touché" title! :) The compo works and I really like the three instances of the bird: the bird itself, its reflection and its shadow!
