Wings spread wide, they advance

Driving down the Oregon coast, on our journey from Seattle to the Bay, we stopped at an overlook south of Lincoln City to watch the waves.

Some one was feeding some seagulls, and a crowd of birds was hovering and diving for the crumbs. I pulled out my camera, and started to take some photographs. One was particularly successful, a gull caught moments before it snaffled a piece of bread out of the air. Its tail feathers were spread wide, as it used its feet to make the final adjustments to its course.

Diving for the crumbs

Another hovered, feathers almost transparent against the bright spring sky.
