    Didn't it hurt your eyes taking that pic Mike? It's a brilliant photo – but I didn't have my glasses on at first and I thought the seagull nearest the sun was a plane.

    Beautiful! Reminds us all to reach toward the light and to soar, with gladness and peace in our hearts.

    Mike, this is gorgeous.

  • Chanel Oct 3, 2008

    Wow, I love this. 🙂 Very different in terms of sky + sun + bird photos.

  • Friar Oct 3, 2008

    Wow. What are the odds of THAT happening?

    And being there to take the photo?

    Oh, I see the seagull now, I thought it was a dragon's head when I first saw it. Great photograph 🙂

    Wow. I have to agree with Chanel. Really nice catch!

    Gorgeous. Something you should paint on the side of a van or camper or something.

    That's a great shot! Initially I thought it was some scifi image. The seagull nearest the light looked like some kind of spaceship at first.

    Cath – Thanks — No it didn't hurt my eyes. The way that I took this photo and a lot of others was to try to follow one bird in a large flock that was swirling and wheeling above us on a Lake Michigan shore. As I followed a bird, I let the auto-focus feature work and hoped for the best. This is one of several decent images that came out. (By the way, guess where I found your comment… Askimet!)

    Julie — thanks!

    Vered — thanks!

    Chanel — thanks!

    Friar — The odds were good, the way that I was tracking the birds with my camera, that something unexpected would show up. There were several other decent images as well.

    Marelisa — Thank's (though I think a dragon's head would have bee neater)

    teeni – thanks!

    XUP – thanks! I just take pictures. I can't draw or paint worth a darn.

    dcr — thanks, Dan. (A spaceship?)
