Juvenile gull, by Mike Parr
Click image above to see this photo in Mike’s gallery.
Mike Parr posted this action capture shot on the DPNow forum recently. Mike felt he was lucky in a couple of senses - one in that this gull hadn't stolen his lunch and secondly that he had been lucky to get the capture at all. I would say Mike was very unlucky to get such a sharp picture of this gull but not quite get the tip of its right wing. But if Mike had not been set up to get a shot like this and actively looking for a picture, we wouldn't be featuring his picture on POTD here.
