Sometimes You Need to Follow Your Nose
I was out in the boat looking for ducks to photograph and was just approaching my planned turnaround point when I spotted a gull that kept popping out past a headland. I assumed that he was just playing in the winds blowing off the headlands and was about to turn when something made me decide to go and take a look. When I did I found this eagle on the shore. The gull was busy circling to see if the eagle had any leftovers from a meal.
The eagle gracefully allowed me to take a number of shots but, unfortunately for the gull, I think that he had just decided that this was a nice place to rest. After disturbing him for a few minutes both the gull and I left him in peace.
