[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Larus genei Breme 1840 (Slender- billed Gull)
A common migrant to Cyprus mainly seen in winter and early spring
A small flock of this species (5-7) birds were at Zakaki area near Limassol port for almost all December 2009 and the following January, giving me the opportunity for a lot of photos.

Lovely capture Christodoulos! The use of such a high shutter speed is quite good to freeze the moment perfectly. Fantastic white balance control and lovely colors! Bravo!

Hello Christodoulos,
superb capture bird in flight. Very nicely frozen with sharpness and details well seen in good view.
Very soft and smooth white feather shown and taken with great care.
Very exciting composition.


Absolutely stunning, what a great feeling of freedom. Greetings. N

Hello Christodoulos,

Well captured, excellent tone and lovely bird!
You capture well clearly this target by high speed shutter.
And, the contrast between the bird and the background with blurred image draws out a good effect for the whole, I think.


Hello Christodoulos

Excellent in-flight shot of this gull,
fine POV and framing with leaving a good free
space in front, very beautiful light,
