210 - Guardian Gulls

From 365 Project
These two gulls stand watch at the Phoebus Section of the Hampton National Cemetery in Hampton Virginia. The gulls can often be seen perched on the perfectly aligned rows of grave markers and even though they can be spread out across the tens of thousands of markers, every perched gull is facing in the same direction. Canon 40D, 1/250 sec @ f/10.0, ISO 200, 400mm focal length.

Did you take this picture today? I went by there today...first time in a long time. Small world.

Yes I went by there at lunch time to take a volunteer photo for FindaGrave.com. Did you notice they lost a massive oak tree in a recent thunderstorm?

I saw that there was a tree down, it had been a while since I was though Phoebus, so I was in awe of many changes.
