A shot taken with my big Tammie 200-400. There's a big storm on the way this weekend, and as always gulls fly inland to avoid the inclement weather. Usually I try to avoid taking pics of birds when it's overcast cos they never come out very well, but in this case things worked out a bit better....the way their feathers kinda melt into the background gives them a rather etherial look, as if they flying down from the Astral Plain or something.
