[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sadly the type of gull he is eludes me, so i'm hoping someone can inform me lol. I nipped down to the tiphead today chasing a caspien tern shot and disturbed some gulls who just circled overhead for ages and I happily sat the and took photos. This one grapped me as the way he has turned his head in flight, just amazes me. He is obviously watching me, watching him.

A very well, tightly composed pic. I enjoy the detail and sharpness of the subject that you have shown. The POV and clear BG make a wonderful pic.

Hi Nicki

An interesting pose from this RED-BILLED GULL, Larus scopulinus. Nicely exposed and beautifully sharp. Well done.

Merhaba Nicki,
Oldukça ilgi çekici bir pozisyon yakalamışsınız. Kuşun ayrıntıları ise çok başarılı sunulmuş. Güzel bir uçar martı karesi olmuş. Elinize sağlık.
