When visiting my parents in Santa Maria, California, around Christmas time, I got up early one morning and headed out to my favorite beach in the area: Shell Beach.
 
The towering cliffs are a great place to observe the numerous Western Gulls that live there. I spent about an hour tracking these birds in flight with my 600mm lens. I got some pretty amazing shots, as you can see in this photo album.
