I really enjoyed seeing these unusual looking gulls, especially because of the well-defined red ring around their eye, well contrasted from the black/white/grey of the rest of their bodies. While it could be argued this is technically not a "flight" shot, it was actually taken as it just touched land after a number of images I took as it flew.
