Managed to catch these two gulls in action while taking pics at a local park. As you can see, the left gull was rudely shoved off its perch by the incoming gull on the right.

you've got to work on your dialog. ;) I like the chaotic composition, but I think it clashes with your attempt to tell a story that exists only in the foreground. Perhaps this is because the birds are centered vertically. That might be a mistake.

A very nice capture of a difficult subject. Focus is spot on. Well done.
