That's so great, Frank! Wonderful timing, nice sharp shutter speed! Love this!
Frank L Croston.: I had the luxury of resting the lens on a fence, so I was able to just wait, and shoot when I thought it was right. Thanks, Elizabeth.

J'aime bien les goélands. Il y en a beaucoup chez moi.
Frank L Croston.: I don't mind them, but they can be a nuisance for some people, we have lots here on the coast.
A superb capture with a great timing Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard.

A lot of people don't like Gulls, but they are very photogenic. Fine movement, Frank
Frank L Croston.: I don't mind them, but I know a lot of people do dislike them, thank you, Elisabeth.
The first to leave the party. Well captured, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary.
After all the recent flapping about, Frank, let's hope everything settles down soon!!! (sigh) It's a delightful image....
Frank L Croston.: Please, yes...Thank you, Ginnie.

That one is taking off like a N Korean long distance missile.

I thought at first one had caught something but I think now that's part of its right wing. Oh to have that ability to fly smile
Frank L Croston.: Yes, it is, Alan. Wouldn't that be something....
number two is doing well, almost a vertical ascent
Frank L Croston.: They do seem to have that ability, Martin.
And at the same time trying to avoid another one doing the same thing!
Frank L Croston.: Amazingly, they never seem to crash, Brian.
