Like a lot of people, the various animals affected by the Gulf Oil Spill have been on my mind lately, so I wanted to do a simple little portrait of one of them, in this case a seagull.

When doing animal portraits, I try and keep the extra bells and whistles to a minimum, and just do a straightforward portrait. The closest I get to any sort of design element is the sky/cloud effect, drifting from blue to white, as the seagull floats gently across the frame.
