[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The nest is ready and they begin to brood. There are 3 eggs (but impossible to see). Each parent participates; during this time the other protects the nest against crows and gulls, waiting on another tree or fishes in the Baltic sea. Sometimes when one parent wants to brood, he goes on the back of the other and delicately massages him or her with the feet. There is a lot of tenderness in this attitude.

Always with the extender.

Great capture of a tender moment and also very difficult to do in view of the high contrast. A few burned spots, but very sharp nonetheless. Thanks for sharing this one.

A magnificent capture, Stephan. A rare glimpse of gull domesticity. Sharp details and perfect exposure. Well done and TFS. : )

Although this is dark, the image is crisp and well timed.
I like it.

Il y a un guide pour faire les critiques qui explique qu'il ne faut pas se contenter d'un "vraiment j'aime beaucoup", mais là je ne vois pas quoi ajouter...
La composition carrée, l'exposition, l'instant, tout y est.
Merci pour cette belle photo!
