Backlit Gull in flight

Taken this morning in bright sun, this first winter Glaucous Winged Gull was cruising over Puget Sound. This is a large crop so there is some grain/noise but I don’t think it detracts from the image too much.

Iso-800, 200-500 at 500 mm, F8, 1250th, D 500, handheld, 30% of full frame, DxO photo lab, Adobe camera raw 10.5, Topaz adjust, TK sharpening action at 20%

David, the gull shows up quite well, with good detail in the shadows. The bokeh in the background is a nice addition.
