When you look at this image of a seagull flying, you can kind of understand why humans have always wanted to fly. The gull's wings are extended in a graceful glide; feathers are glowing in the backlit sunlight; the bird's head is solidly planted in the front, toward the future.
It all looks so easy, so effortless, so compelling, that it is no wonder that we have long admired birds for their ability to fly. Kind of makes you jealous, when you really think about it.
