Hi Trekkers,

I was absent in the last month - mostly because Ireland are experiencing a never-before-seen summer, very warm and dry in the local context. Thanks for God, we can finally enjoy real summer and sunshine here...

There's an adult European herring gull (Larus argentatus) trying to drink from a little stream flowing into the sea near the famous Garryvoe beach. This species is widespread and abundant everywhere in the coastal areas of the Emerald Isle.

Photo: taken in manual exposure mode, PP: slight level adjustment and re-sharpening after re-sizing.

And today, after many weeks of drought, it's raining again - that's why I'm at home and posting this photo. :-) Thanks for looking.

Hello Laszlo,
Nice to see this Gull in your gallery. Well exposure and details. I like glittering water surface. Nice POV and perfect timing.
Thanks for sharing,
