This is No. 1 of a series of 5 pictures of gulls riding the winds of a violent Pacific storm which struck the coast of Vancouver Island,British Columbia,Canada on April 2, 2010.
Gulls always seem to stay close to land when winds reach a certain speed, and they head into the wind, floating fairly close to the ground, often hovering in a stationary position.
