Sometimes a little patience is rewarded. The pool at our hotel in Emerald Isle has an adjacent, narrow "infinity" pool that the seagulls love to visit and treat as their personal bird bath. But the birds scatter when people approach. I sat down next to the "infinity" pool with my Canon D10 point and shoot and waited for the birds to return. Among the shots was this one. Canon D10, f4, 1/1250 s, 11.5 mm, ISO 80.
