Great shot! I like these gulls with their round black faces.
Thanks Mary! I forgot all about these gulls… only see the “normal” gulls in London on the whole (unless you know where to look of course…)
Great to get a comment so soon after uploading! :-) Just uploaded an image of him landing :o)
This is a terrific shot!! Excellent action capture. We are covered in these gulls in Corpus Christi, TX. They are beautiful and so graceful. Just keep a close hold on your lunch.
Thanks Reginia! :-)
If only I could drive, I would see so much more of the US… if I do ever get sorted though, I shall be straight down to Texas to check out the gulls :-P
There was too much carrion around for these guys to want my lunch… not sure if that makes me feel better or worse ;-)
Tack Mariana :-D
Nice definition – well done

Well I must admit I think this is fantastic, I don’t have much luck with birds, I think they know I am about ready and stand and stare….Well done it is a beauty. Shirley
