Good Morning Janice,
I like the repeating pattern of feathers in your composition ;-}}
Great exposure, detail, DOF, color, title, and POV of all that preening action...Hey, at least one of them's keeping a look-out :)

Amusing title for an amusing interpretation of this Red-billed Gull scene.
Nice composition and sharpness with excellent lighting (looks like late afternoon/early evening).
Thanks for sharing,

And the winner is... let me see... what a fight! ladies and gentlemen! yes! second bird from right! it isn't ordinary bird! it is Houdini of washing birds! Congratulations! Now show us how you escape from our pan! And yes, you'll be chain up! [chain up? I don't know if this phrase exist in English :-)]
By the way! I didn't know that you like Terry Pratchett Janice - he's great!

A very nice photo. The right bird (winner) has a smile on his face (-: A very nice composition. Naturel colours. Interesting info. POV, DOF and BG are oké. I think that the photo will be better if you cropped a bit at the right-hand side. Regards and TFS Bob

We have Laughing Gulls in Galveston. I call them beach buzzards. Here also, you can find them far from the coast at inland lakes. Nice capture showing a different, at least for me, type of gull. The ones here are very loud and noisy. It is why they are called laughing gulls. Thanks for sharing.

This is really a nice one Janice, I meant to comment on this one earlier but missed this one,I have to say the sharpness and clarity on this is superb with no noise, I also like the way the rail the seagulls are plopped on directs itself from the right corner outward, showing excellent DOF. Simple is beautiful. :)
