Standing atop the lava cliffs beyond La Loberia we watched numerous Gulls and Tropicbirds returning to their nests. This Swallow-tailed Gull was in a hard right bank making its way towards the cliff, and offered this shot.

Great shot for showing how the different body parts are used in the aerial manoeuvers!
