This young Pacific Gull seems to be preforming a gracefull dance in the sky. Notice that it has lost a foot, possibly by a shark whilst resting on the water.
This photo was taken at Coffin Bay, South Australia.

    Fabulous capture Ian. It doesn’t seem to be having any difficulty flying, in spite of it’s losses.

  • Thank you Trish.
