[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my last Ringed-bill Gull pictures for a while. You can see my previous posts for a description the the bird.

These 2 guy's kept flying around a pond while I was standing on a hill over looking the same pond. This vantage point gave me a "birds eye" view of the fun they were having.

I hope you enjoy the picture as much as they did posing for it.

Hola Bob.
Great photo of this two Gulls. The gray sky makes it even better. I also like the name.

hello Bob

excellent symtrical in-flight photo of these Ring-billed Gulls,
i love the way they are framed on the image, one entering
on it and the other going out from it but having a good
little space in-front of it, and like Luis wrote :
The gray sky makes it even better ,



Hi Bob,

Love the diagonal pairing, good colours and focus (not that easy with gulls). Great colour in the sky sets them off well. TFS. Regards Bill

Hello Bob! Excellent pair. Interesting scene. Fantastic shot and effect. Good luck!

Dear Bob!

Indeed, the point of view creates a particular effect, providing the feeling that I as the spectator am part of the patrol. I like the symmetry of the composition very much and especially appreciate the cloudy sky that changes from the uniform blue we usually see.

Kind regards
