This is the same Black Backed Gull in flight. We went to the waterfront at Auckland central and this is next to the Tamaki Yacht club. It was a cold wind out there and raining but I wanted to catch what ever action I could with the new camera.
So I was happy that I could get a series of flight of the same bird in action. The Black Backed Gull is a large sea gull with a yellow beak and yellow feet. It soars in the sky with no effort in flying, and is very agile in what ever it does. It does not matter to me it is black and white, it has personality.
An exercise of a birds flight.
This bird is thinking on the wing. It knows this beach very well. He also knows the identity of it's other bird companions.
As he watches me, he also keeps his distance for some times there are predators like cats that would like a bird for a feed. Im not interested in eating it but he doesn't know that.
