Heavy and Strong
It was stormy and cold yesterday. One of the interesting things about heavy wind is watching the birds. The seagull (black speck) in sky was stationary for the 60 seconds or so that I was taking pictures. When I take the time to notice, I often see them flying against the wind, sort of a seagull treadmill that keeps them in the same spot until they decide to move out of the current. When they turn around, they quickly and effortlessly float along with the wind, and travel far in a matter of moments.
