Silver and blue

These pictures were taken from the back of a boat last weekend as this Silver Gull watched for chips or other classic flying food.

I really like the combination of colour and shape.  Just a gull and the sky (and a bit of cloud)




You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday.

Love these photos! It's nice to have the flight speed of a seabird slowed down by the movement of a boat.

A short while ago. We were driving down a country highway and when I looked at my wife in the passenger seat, there was a hawk flying right next to us at the same speed. It was only a couple of feet from my wife's head. Oh man! If I could have only got a photo of that. When I told my wife she turned her head and the hawk turned away.

Great shots, Stewart. I don't see that much else is needed with a beautiful blue sky and a pretty bird.
