Who will follow the leader?

Seagulls on the wall at Vinoy Park - Nikon D300 Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D lens @ f/5.6 ISO 400 1/2500thOne of my favorite spots to be in the St. Petersburg is the tip of Vinoy Park.  It is usually entirely devoid of people and is the gateway into the small harbor in front of downtown that offers views of what cityline there is, the Pier and then a sweeping view of Tampa Bay.  Dolphins hunt along this seawall, manatees amble buy, and of course birds of all kinds use it as a rest stop.  

All this makes for a great spot to just sit, think and observe, as well as a great location for photography.  

Sea gulls are common, but I liked how they were all lined up with one of them deciding to fly off.  Did he/she hope that all the others would follow?  Did she/he hope to be able to fly off alone?  These are the kinds of things that constantly pop into my head.
