As i mentioned before i like to stop at
the rhine and check out the (flying) birds there...

Unfortunately the gulls are mostly only here for the
winter, so i do not recognize the exact spezies, maybe
it was one of the Black-headed Gulls that were here too
and this is a juvenile?

Hallo Thosrten,
eine super aufnahme, vor allem die Perspektive gefaellt mir sehr. Man bekommt den Eindruck die Moewe fliegt gwenau auf einen zu und wird gleich durch den Bildschirm kommen. Prima Bildgestaltung mit exellnter Schaerfe und prima details.
Gruss..Sky

Hello Thorsten,

Sorry but can't help you with the identification of this gull in flight.
Beautiful in flight shot.
Excellent composition with the diagonall line of the wings pointing at the lower right and upper left corner of the frame.
Love the way you've captured the bird with open bill and the two gulls in the Bg add to the scene wonderfully.
Very good work on sharpness and exposure due to wich feather details are very nice.
Very well done. TFS!!!

Warm regards, Harry

Hi Thorsten, beautiful composition of these 3 gulls, expecially with the stopped action on the juvenile flying. With it's wingspread it has very nicely framed the other two. Your depth of field is very good, focusing in on the flyer, while muting down the focus on the rear two. Enjoyed!

Thanks, John

Hi Thorsten.
What a huge in-flight shot with amazing POV, eye-contact and brilliant composition. Simply great timing, sharpness and details of flying gull and some blurriness of the BG and other bird. My compliments. Perfect shot.

Hi Thorsten,

Very good flight shot of this gull. Unfortunately no one can recognise it. Looks quite unfamiliar to me, hopefully a rarity? Great handling of in-flight action, sharp details, good composition and colours.

Hi Thor,
It´s a wonderful image, with a likeable wing span in diagonal, perfect focus and two bird a little bit blurred as BG below. Congratulations & TFS

Hallo Thorsten,
Das ist her wieder mal ein excllentes Foto! Super Farben, perfekte Schärfentiefe und vor allem ein toller Bildaufbau! Die geschwungen gleitende Möwe fülle die Aufnahme perfekt (hoffe sie ist dir nicht in die Linse geknallt) und die beiden Möwen im Hintergrund ... passt!
Grüsse aus Luxemburg, Mike

Hallo Thorsten
As I said too many fellow Trek Nature members: This is a scene I would like to capture one day. An in flight action shot. Stunning image, with a delightful view. I really admire the photographers who take these kinds of photos and present something as beautiful as this one of yours. This bird surely has a very impressive wingspan. What amazes me the most is the clarity and the detail of the birds face, especially the eyes. It looks as this one has just lifted its head, looked you in the eye and said: "I am going to land". A most appealing, bright and sunny sight. Thanks for sharing. I appreciated this one very much.
Kind regards from a very cold and wet South Africa

Hello Thorsten!

Excellent shot - great quality and interesting dynamic composition - well blured but attractive background.

Well done!

Regards
Jacek

Hi Thorsten,
das Bild hier gefällt mir besonders gut. Sowohl des Bildaufbaus als auch der Farben wegen.
Der Kopf der Möwe ist schön scharf und mit ihren Flügeln bildet sie einen wunderschönen Rahmen für die beiden unscharfen Tauben im Hintergrund.
