Diana and I just returned from a trip to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Part of the trip was an Elderhostel program held on Grand Manan Island in the Bay of Fundy, just 6 miles off the coast of northern Maine. Included in the program was a boat trip along the shore of the island. On the boat trip I was practicing taking flight shots of the gulls. When I downloaded my photos to my computer, I was totally surprised to find this shot. As you can see, the body and the wings of this Herring Gull are oriented as you would expect them to be, but the head is turned 180 degrees and is looking up into the sky! I didn’t realize that a bird could even do this. It brings to mind an old joke that I’m sure my grandkids would enjoy. Why don’t ducks fly upside down? Because they might quack up.
