AIRSPACE VIOLATION

Mixed gulls at Lovers Key State Park at New Pass
Fort Myers Beach, Florida USA

This family of gulls at Lovers Key State Park at New Pass includes what
I believe to include a possible first documented (at far right) observation
of the Lesser Black-backed Gull at the park. Needless to say, my elbows
are still raw from the experience at this magnificent place.

Nikon D80 ,Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR Zoom
1/1000s f/5.6 at 300.0mm iso160, with flash full exif

The air traffic tower must have been closed due to budget cuts..
Nice pov and capture, one cool shot!
