[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Little Gull (Hydrocoloeus minutus) is a small gull which breeds in northern Europe and Asia. It also has small colonies in parts of northern Canada. It is migratory, wintering on coasts in western Europe, the Mediterranean and (in small numbers) the northeast USA. As is the case with many gulls, it has traditionally been placed in the genus Larus. It is the only member of the genus Hydrocoloeus, although it has been suggested that Ross's Gull also should be included in this genus.

Hi Volkan. This is a fine close up of the Little Gull. i like the pose with the bird cleaning its self. Good feather detail and rich colours. I like the low POV. Well taken TFS.
