This really excellent work!!!! Gulls are fascinating clowns of the sky!!!!!Bill
Thanks very much Bill, I took several shots of the Gulls flying around, there didn’t seem to be any reason for it, there was no food for them or anything. I layered a few shots together then added some gulls from my own images so there were some not blurred.
Fantastic capture Nigel…I love going to the lake and getting shots of the seagulls!
Thanks very much Gene, Gulls are fascinating birds to photograph, they are so manoeuvrable in the air.
Brilliant! Bangers! Bewdy! Brother! ~:0) VivaChas!
Thanks very much Chas, really appreciate it.
Very nicely done. You have to be really lucky (or patient) to get the gulls like that.
It’s a photomontage ……..
Oh, it’s a photomontage…
