[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, this photo was taken in the last week,
As you can see in the background, the snow of the
woods being melted it did temporary ponds and
marshes on some places of the wood.

The time the frozen water of the pond will be melted,
specially the ducks and also gulls they pass their time
over there in the woods that became temporary pond.

Where I took this photo of the Gull in-flight,
that day they where 10 to 15 Mallard Duck couples,
1 American Black Duck couple and 3 Wood Duck couples

Once the water of the real pond of that nature park
will be melted at that time they will go to the pond.

1/2500s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm)

Hello Asbed,
What an attractive image of this beautiful Ring-billed Gull inflight. The feathers have been frozen perfectly in place showing much detail and natural color. The lighting was just right as it filtered through its trailing wing and tail feathers creating a nice illuminated effect. I'm not used to seeing gull photos with a wooded BG, something different and quite eye catching.

Ciao Asbed, great capture of fantastic in-flight gull, wonderful colors, excellent sharpness, fine details and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciso Silvio

Salut Asbed,Very nice photo of this Ring-billed Gull inflight.in flight ..
Nice action shot, lovely composition, details and natural colours.
Best wishes,

Hello Asbed,
wonderful in-flight capture in attractive backlight.
I like to see the gull so perfectly still in elegantly smooth motion.
A pretty story of springtime advancing.
Thank you! With best regards,

Bonjour Asbed,

L'espace devant l'oiseau indique le mouvement. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du Goéland à bec cerclé en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Hi Asbed,
This is an aesthetic and clear capture. You used the backlight very well, and the shutter speed / f-stop settings were excellent also: the gull's tack sharp during their flight and the busy background is blurred enough not to gain the viewers' attention. Nice off-centered composition as well. Superb image, hats off!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
