It was New Year's day, 2012. We were on a cruise, and today's port was Aruba. While waiting for our "semi-sub" to arrive some of the guests got out snacks. Local seagulls knew the snack drill. They also knew that the wind flowing over the tender produced an aerodynamic wave that they could surf - appearing to hover over us. This seagull and his friends were waiting only a dozen feet away for someone to drop a cracker.
Camera: Canon T1I with 300mm lens. Exposure was automatic: 1/400 second at F/7.1. Available online at http://www.cs.southern.edu/jbeckett/Seagull.JPG.
