I forgot to post this picture before. It was taken in 2002. I won't say it's a great picture, but given how it was taken with a digital camera in 2002. I think it turned out fairly well. Especially considering I never really had fancy equipment. The actual camera was more 2000, or early 2001 technology if anything.
The gull posed quite well for me though. With a good wind, it was practically hovering in place just a few feet from my face. Which allowed to me take this picture. I believe the gulls there were quite used to people, and were fluttering around me constantly. I should also mention this was taken on the beach in Mississippi. Not far from Biloxi if I remember right.
