Nice and sharp capture of this blackheaded gull in winter plumage. I like the way he's flying into the picture ;-)
I notice you have a small darkish spot in the blue near the right wing in the bottom of the picture. This may be due to dust on your camera's lowpass filter and - if it is - it can be removed with pressurized air. Don't attempt to do it yourself, though, as it must be air with *no* liquid in it, your photo dealer will know which kind.

Really pleasing crop, with plenty of room for the gull to fly into. Nice clarity, with blurred background. You could clone away the small spot that Milloup spotted. Well done! -Jenn
