Fallen Feathers
While at the beautiful North California beaches last year, I noticed a seagull that was floating helplessly with the tide, trying extremely hard to escape, but to no avail. I feared that it might get hypothermia or drown, so I carried it out of the water and placed it where its wings could dry and it could fly again. It took over half an hour, ample time for me to get some pictures of this magnificent creature. I love seagulls, ravens, crows, and many other birds I feel that the world holds a negative or uncaring attitude towards.

At first it tried to bite me, but it soon realized that it didn't really have a choice and just submitted.
