A couple days after Christmas, last year, I visited the spillway of a local lake and was shocked to see such furious activity. I've lived in this area my entire life and have never seen such a show at this location. I photographed this on two consecutive days. This gave me a wonderful chance to play with several lenses on both my Z50 & Z6.

First, a look up to the actual spillway. The lake is above the highest concrete wall in the distance. Immediate below that are thousands of gulls.

As I pull back a bit, you can start to see the fishing area.

These look like just a consecutive burst of shots, but this went on for 2 day and then it was over.
