Seagulls and sky
Gulls are seabirds in the family Laridae. They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae), and more distantly to the waders, auks and skimmers. Most gulls belong to the large genus Larus.

They are in general medium to large birds, typically grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They have stout, longish bills and webbed feet.

Most gulls, particularly Larus species, are ground nesting omnivores, which will take live food or scavenge opportunistically.

Apart from the kittiwakes, gulls are typically coastal or inland species, rarely venturing far out to sea. The large species take up to four years to attain full adult plumage, but two years is typical for small gulls.

Beautiful shot. The sky looks amazing and the detail is very sharp. I like the composition alot. and the POV is perfect.

Great job and TFS

Hi Ioannis
I like this picture very much.
I love seagulls and these ones are very nice
The background is very unusual and makes a very good composition with the birds.
The resolution is not perfect but is OK.
Regards
JC

Πολύ ζωντανή εκφραστική φωτό με έντονο δυναμισμό.
Φιλικά Νίκος.

Λιγάκι θολή αλλά εξαιρετική! Μου δίνει το αίσθημα της ελευθερίας. Πολλή καλή δουλειά.
