[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
In the same place that the previous photo and the same day that the gull was attacking the photographer... now the sequel: gull attacking another gull. The image has been cropped from the horizontal original frame.



En la época de cría a las adultas de gaviota les da un subidón de agresividad y pasan el día vigilando su espacio aéreo en alerta continua. Ya pueda ser un fotógrafo que pasa, un mamífero más pequeño que merodee, otra especie de ave, un pollo ingenuo y perdido que estrena alas ese año o, como en este caso, un adulto de la misma especie, la gaviota despega, intercepta y ataca con determinación. En este caso le está pegando un buen picotazo en la pata. Lo curioso es que el atacado suele tener una conducta de huida invariable, sin revolverse a devolver la lesión, como si supiera que está quebrantando una ley no escrita o que la atacante no cejará ni dará ningún paso atrás en esa lucha.

Excellent capture! Great stop action! I've attempted to take photos of seagulls in flight, but did not come up with anything useable yet.

Good decision to crop to a vertical composition, given the vertical position of the birds.

Thanks for sharing,

Lorna

Hi Carlos, that is one nasty gull. The capture of this action is very good. The front bird looks frantic, with that leg sticking up and the expression. Your detail is very good with good clarity throughout.

Thanks, John

What a beautiful soft and even light and perfect exposure on your subjects! Outstanding focus and great composition. I really like this! You should be very proud.

What a great capture for you as well as the gull on top :) Carlos.
Sorry, but I did miss this perfect image.
Sharpness, composition and lighting are perfect.
Great details and pose of the gulls.
Both birds do stand out wonderfully against the sky color tones.
Excellent work and a great joy to look at.
Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes,
Harry
