Yesterday I had a bit of fun photographing this Ring-billed Gull (Larus delawarensis) at Farmington Bay Wildlife Management Area, I love the snowy whites these gulls exhibit in their plumage year round. This gull flew in towards me then turned to expose its complete underside.

This image is the next frame I took as the gull turned to dive towards the water. Just one frame can make quite a difference in poses when you are shooting on the wing.
