Seagull Study

06 July 2012

red billed and ready to grab the smallest morsel

caught in flight landing wings high and forward 
tipped black and white ends

coming in for landing 
body at 45 degrees red legs forward and down
red bill parallel light grey wings back

they flock and fight over every crumb
opportunists everyone

captured in flight like fallen angels
scavenging from humans

a different bird different landing technique
body almost horizontal wings near vertical
red legs limp red bill pointing down

more than a dozen they amass a squawk and squeak
comedians with wings feathers all a fluff

final shot front on landing
wings illuminated looking ethereal
