This shot was taken early morning on a day trip to Vancouver Islands beautiful West Coast. Taking a stroll down the beach searching for something to shoot (that I hadn't shot before on numerous other trips), I approached a flock of seagulls. I didn't expect much- but zoomed in anyways, just by chance as they were being scared off by a nearby toddler. I was pleasantly surprised. This image has been cropped.

It looks like a commando of Para/Troppers seeking for fresh flesh :-) LOL

Very nice shot. Some one flying, some one on ground, some one take off... So nice.
Well done Daniel.

Great shot of a flock of bird, I like the group effect.

That was a very nice opening shot Dan. The light is good, the crop is working nicely and so is the timing of the shot just as the birds are about to take flight. Thanks for sharing this.

Good idea to keep a little space on the right as the birds seem to be moving in that direction.

In celebration of your 400th post, I thought I would critique your first post :-)
It's a good 'action' shot with plenty going on and the panorama style suits it well.
