I have often said that two of the important elements of photography is luck and skill. Luck is being at the right place at the right time and skill is being able to handle the situation that arises. It was with out doubt that luck was with me on November 7th when I was privileged to witness the appearance of the a rare (to my area of Indiana) “Little Gull”. this experience lasted less than 30 seconds

Here is what Cornell Labs say about the Little Gull. Your comments are welcome.
The smallest gull in the world, the Little Gull is common across Eurasia. A few pairs have been nesting in North America since the 1960s, and the species is now a rare, but regular, visitor to the East Coast and the Great Lakes.
