This image of a Heermann Gull is one of my favourites from my trip to La Jolla. I didn't have very much time since I was set up to photograph the close up pouch details of a Pelican (an image for another day) and this Gull landed on a nearby out cropping. I quickly composed the image, liked what I saw the viewfinder and took the shot. A couple of seconds later the Gull took off.
