Image Description: Sea gulls are one of the most populous birds in the world, typically found living around seaside urban areas that hold the promise of saltwater, fish, and the human food waste that so often serves to make up a large part of their diet. In this photograph, two sweeping gulls meet up with the tops of some of the tallest buildings in New York City, heading towards denser population, most likely on the hunt for food. With their wings spread in distinctive gull fashion, the birds are riding the air current as opposed to wasting strength by flapping their wings, helping them to conserve energy, which in turn takes at least some of the edge of their hunger as they attempt to locate a meal.
