I love photos of birds taking off and landing... the wing positions are always so graceful! Both of these work very nicely!
What a lovely video / song!
Mary MacADNski: Gulls following a plow is certainly iconic and a common way to watch the birds. Glad you liked the music.
The same the world over, Mary, a nice shot.
Mary MacADNski: That is exactly right. Gulls galore.

Real feeding frenzy
Mary MacADNski: They do it for weeks afterward. My farmer plowed the adjacent field in late Nov and the birds were there 24/7 for a week.
Smart birds, Mary!!!
Mary MacADNski: Very opportunistic.

I hope the worms dive deep down fast... A wonderful scene and very often seen here in the Netherlands too. Those birds are smart. Thanks for showing both.
Mary MacADNski: People always ask for the colour so this seems easiest. The worms following the plow is seen on farmland world wide don't you think.

They are great opportunists. I hope that there is rich pickings for all.
Mary MacADNski: Couldn't get fresher than following the plow.
A lovely black and white Mary, the birds work really well against the background bands. One of my favourites.
Mary MacADNski: This is a common site in the fall with plows doing their thing and nature taking over from there.

It's easier than fishing!

Works well in B&W.
Mary MacADNski: All fall this happens, filling up the birds. I wonder where there food comes from now.

Great picture - they follow our plows as well smile
Mary MacADNski: I think it is universal.
I particularly like the B.& W.version.
Mary MacADNski: It is lots pure black that's for sure.

They never miss the opportunity of a good feed.
Mary MacADNski: They usually feed from a field for a week or so.
You are right. I love his voice.
Mary MacADNski: The songs are so great too. He was so tremendous in every way and died way too young.
Nice one + they certainly show up well in B/W
Mary MacADNski: There certainly is a contrast. This is a straight conversion with the B/W button.
lunch is being served Mary... i can't decide which shot that i favor... so they must be equal in their differences....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I quite often am like that but some the black and white wins hands down and sometime it is the coloured version that is better.
excellent shot, Mary. just over the weekend i saw a similar landing of pigeons at a city square.
Mary MacADNski: I love pigeons in cities, a remembrance from childhood.
