This guy was being chased by another Gull at high speed so he pulled straight up and totally stalled. The guy chasing him was fooled and went straight on by. I missed the stall but was reasonably ready for his recovery...And this is it!

No tripod but shutter speed of 1/1000 sec. Generally I like to shoot shots like this at no less than 1/500. ISO was 100 and aperture f7. If the gull was hanging on a string I might use a tripod:)
