Fledgling gull with pinfeathers takes flight from water


When you are too young to fly, but do it anyway.
This fledgling gull was swimming alone near the fish cleaning station at a Port Renfrew marina, waiting for salmon entrails to fall her way.  Only when she took flight did I realize how young she was.
She launched like a pro.

Baby gull

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
—1 Timothy 4:12 NLT
