Superb portrait shot on this gull. I love the tight close crop and framing. The colors and detail look amazing. Great shot, I love it!
This is beautiful! Luc.
My closest contact with gulls was when I worked offshore in the Gulf of Mexico many years ago.
As does Scott, I also really like the tight crop And framing on this one.
I wonder if anyone as ever made a pet of a gull? I know crows make good pets when they are acquired young. With the gulls importuning behavior someone might even be able to train one... just a thought.
I really appreciate you! Thanks for sharing,

Hi Luc, I like how he has tucked his head into his neck, as if he is sheltering from the cold. Garbage eaters they are, and this fellow looks quite attractive. Great shot, perfect focus and colours. Very well done, I like hom, well I mean I like his portrait. Ours live here 100% and never leave.

Slightly sad gull today? Lovely portrait, excellent POV and composition with blue BG. You're right - it's beauty for sury. And I can say you that Polish gulls also eat everything ;-) Best wishes my friend!

Seen in this way, Luc, the gull appears to be a beautiful creature, with little of the aggressive behaviour that we associate with it.
Superb portrait, with excellent details, perfect colors, POV, BG and lighting.
Another fine posting from you.
I thank you for sharing this wonderful composition with us.

I am normally not crasy about Gull picture since its so commun. But when it's sharp and well exposed than it looks better. Here you did quite a portrait of him or her. Excellent highlight detail.
Good work and TFS.

Gorgeous. The colors are wonderful, especially the whites. In this portrait, this gull looks very satisfied with his popcorn meal. Stunning detail. Well done.
