Sky Watch Friday

That time of the week again, and this week I managed to get a slightly different photo from my usual. As I came home from work on Monday evening, I became aware of rather a lot of seagull noise, and looking round from the front door I saw this:

I think the gulls were after flying ants - we'd actually had quite a hot and sunny few days, and there were critters everywhere. I keep my camera in my handbag just in case I spot something good while I'm out, so I took a photo. A little boy sitting on the neighbour's wall said "there's millions of birds over there as well if you want to take a photo of them", so I thought it would be rude not to! This was the result.

Oh my, what a flock of seagulls. That made it a lot easier to capture then the low flying ones.

I started to count them - but I gave up! Flying ants are no fun.

A great capture.... we have the same problem with flying Ants.



Please forgive this 'copy & paste part of my comment but I am on my rounds checking all the links but wanted you to know I have seen your post and will try to get back again.
On behalf of all other Sky Watchers the team thank you for taking part this week.

Remember them doing this over Ynyslas?
You have had clearer skies than us.

Great Sky Watch. That's a *lot* of birds.

The idea that there could be so many flying ants to attract that many seagulls completely creeps me out! :) Nice sky, though.

Greetings from Dumfries, Virginia. I love how your photos capture the swirling motions of the flock of seagulls (now, we just need a soundtrack to go with the post, like "I ran so far away" to get this picture or something cute like that). Anyway! Thanks for sharing with SkyWatch, have a great weekend!
