    Synchronised posing and a testament to your direction skills Andrew – even the gulls take notice. :) Good clean colours and form here also.

  • Thanks Roger, yes the chicks did seem to mimic the parents stance!

    Stoic! Great poses.

  • Yes John, stoic is a good description! These birds are relentless predators and they do have the arrogance of a creature at the top of their food chain! Thanks for the comment, Andrew
