A fine close portrait of a Herring Gull calling out. I can almost hear it!
This is sharp and the head it taken from a fine POV that allows us to see the back of the mouth. Nice composition and BG too.

This is an absolutely superb image. Sharp and detailed and the bird looks as if it is screaming at you. Probably wanting some reward for such a good pose. well done

Thank you for sharing,

I love it!!!! I can almost hear him. Fantastic capture with the beak wide opened with a perfect view of the inside of his mouth. The head is nice and sharp with good colors. Excellent background and composition.

Simply great, expressive close-up of a nice seagull. First of all it is amazing exposure and reflection of the white plumage. Pictured moment is great. Timing is outstanding. Neutral smooth BG is looked greatly too. Bravo. Well done and TFS.

Gulls - they're they're the same the whole world over!!
Excellent capture Siegfried - he's in full scream here. And he has his eye right on you!!
He looks very scruffy - good find
