Taking flight

My friend Robert Greig from g+ posted a photo from of a gull taking flight into a beautiful sunset. I commented on joyvisionart that I waited 10 minutes for a gull to take flight from a pole. So, I figured that I should post the photo here in case anyone might want to see it.

Photo take in Chesapeake Beach Maryland.
