[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Larus michahellis - Gümüş Martı [TR], Yellow-legged Gull [EN] (CHARADRIIFORMES: LARIDAE) is a large gull of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, which has only recently achieved wide recognition as a distinct species. It was formerly treated as a subspecies of either L. cachinnans - Hazar Martısı [TR], Caspian Gull [EN] or more broadly as a subspecies of L. argentatus - Kuzey Gümüş Martısı [TR], Herring Gull [EN]. It can be recognized by red eye ring, bill shape and color patterns, yellow legs (L. cachinnans has light pinky legs). The species is one of the most common gulls in Turkiye.
It is named after the German zoologist Karl MICHAHELLES.

Another shot presents as a Workshop. I hope you will like them.

Hi Ahmet,

We see lots of Gulls on TN but these two posing together so nicely are special. The clarity is exceptional. Colors are lovely. The eyes, beaks, feathers and tail feathers are stunning.
