Photo of the Day (11/20/08)

Today’s photo of the day is by Flickr contributor Bedouin77. These gulls were the perfect target for his Canon 5D. The clarity and sharpness of these birds in flight is rather impressive. The shot was captured in Solalé, Cuba last year.

It reminds me of a scene out of Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. It’s as if the two parents are squawking behind Jonathon saying:

“Why Jon, why?” His mother asked. “Why is it so hard to be like the rest of the flock, Jon? Why can’t you leave low flying to the pelicans, the albatross?

Nice work, Bedouin77!
