[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The Caspian gull (taxon Larus cachinnans) is a large gull and a member of the herring and lesser black-backed gull complex. The scientific name is from Latin. Larus appears to have referred to a gull or other large seabird, and cachinnans means "laughing", from cachinnare, "to laugh".

The Caspian gull breeds around the Black and Caspian Seas, extending eastwards across Central Asia to north-west China. In Europe it has been spreading north and west and now breeds in Poland and eastern Germany. Some birds migrate south as far as the Red Sea and Persian Gulf while others disperse into Western Europe, in countries such as Sweden, Norway and Denmark or the Benelux and even North of France. Small numbers are now seen regularly in Britain, especially in South-east England, East Anglia and the Midlands.

My concept was then cleared about this bird, there in Western Australia I found this and observing at very close that it is much fearless and bold.
Some time it will pose for its shooter, you did well exposed and composed, nice shot.

HI Marius,top quality pic another time,this time in perfect pose and so too easy,but very sharp and well exposed,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Well captured this Caspian Gull. Difficult bird to capture due to its White color. Well captured its eye too. Perfect background and details.
Thanks and regards,

Hi Marius,
I'm quite familiar with scenes like this as the more robust, but otherwise very similar species Larus argentatus is very common in Ireland, where I live. But I never get bored of them! Again a photo with perfect exposure and simple, yet fantastic composition. Great sharpness and depth as well. Stunning shot! Bravo!
Kind regards, László
