He certainly looks intent on watching those Guillemots The Herring Gull is beautiful with excellent colors and details. The pose is marvelous. A wonderful nature scene with great notes to explain what is happening.

Your money or your life ...
Nice shot James. It doesn't look like the Gull knows who to pick on first. All aspects are first class as ever.
P.S Have been away all week but have just picked up my mail. Appreciate you thinking of me and hopefully things are running their natural corse.

Very beautiful shot of this lovely bird,James!
Hahaha! :-D Very original and unique capture, James :-)
I love how the Guillemots are warning the Seagull not to come closer while the Gull seems completely unperturbed (that's the first time I've EVER used that word!) by them :-)
Very, very sharp.
Well done, James!!
p.s anymore on the photography course thing?

Excellent composition. The professor (the Herring Gull) is talking to his students (the Guillemots) :-). Excellent POV, DOF and sharpness. Very good colours.

Great capture, James!
Herring Gulls are opportunist feeders and as this caption suggests, would willingly pinch a captured sandeel from a guillemot. They also wait to hack at their eggs or take chicks. I like how the gull contrasts with the dark BG and the row of gullemots heads below him showing their anxiety.
Nice one and thanks for sharing it.
