A flock of seagulls

Lined up with military precision next to the Littlehaven Hotel, South Shields. I think they were forming a guard of honour for HMS Illustrious!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 450mm lens, 1/350 second, f5.6, iso 200

  2. When I first saw the pic, I thought they couldnt be real. Very neat pic. Birds normally fly away right as I hit the button.
