March 2011, Piedras Blancas, California
I was walking along the beach just south of Piedras Blancas taking pictures of elephant seals. Off in the distance I could see another person approaching on the beach from the opposite direction. As she came closer she startled a group of seagulls standing on the shoreline. They immediately took flight straight towards me, providing me with an unexpected photo op. It pays to have your camera ready at all times.
