Fly-By

Each year there is a special aviation display.  All the best birds; long distance migratory, speed freaks, acrobatic etc etc get together to put on a show to the less able birds.  You know the ones I mean, the ones that fly into windows or get stuck inside supermarkets and the like.  Well we were lucky enough to see 'Gull Day' and this was one of the fly by's performed by the White Arrows Gul Display Team.  I was distracted talking to an emu and being such a clutz with the camera I missed the smoke trails...I know I know schoolboy error!

I feel quite relaxed after an eventful weekend!

That green grass is awesome. The birds look a little blurry to me, but overall I like it very much.

I really like what you have caught, the moment of it all, how the birds are looking up at those flying (its quite funny to see). nice, it the sorta thing i would but i hate seagulls (living in brighton and all, they wake u up mating, randy bastards).
I'm still laughing at that story and it's a very nice capture none the less. Kinda reminds me of Johnathan Livingston Seagul.

Hi Simon, absolutely LOVING this one, you'd caught a really great scene, and the shot has a great feel to it. Would makea good shot for caption competition.
Glad you had an eventful / relaxing weekend. Alas spent mine in hospital, but at least they didn't get the knives out ';
