This is a lovely full action shot. Its nice and sharp and well composed. The setting is fascinating, the buildings and surroundings, just add to the moment. I wonder what they were feeding on. A lovely shot.

Hello Subhash,
A great in flight action shot of a flock of gulls!
After scrutinising this carefully I could not see any species of gull, except the Black-headed, but in various stages of development. However I suspect that there might be some Brown-headed among them.
TFS this fine image,

Something different for the eys from the city of varanasi.
