SkyWatch Friday - Feeding Seagulls!

I was under the pier at Newport Beach, CA taking pictures when suddenly a mass of seagulls launched into the air and hovered overhead.

 This guy caught a morsel tossed from the side of the pier.
The beach was very damp, cold and cloudy...just a white sky!

Great shots. Being under a flock of seagulls can be "dangerous" ;^) Hope you got away clean.

You always hve something special for Skywatch. I remember the Hawaian scenes.
These birds are waiting for bread being thrown I suppose :-)

Awesome shots Carolyn, I love the action and feel of chaos. The whiteness of the sky really adds to the drama of the photos.
