An Ice Bird
Brrrr, Luc. Is it really that cold in Montreal already?
i was out all day in my t-shirt and took some butterfly pictures. Your ice gull does not seem to mind the shards of ice on the water. A very "cold" picture indeed. Well done and TFS. : )

The picture is very nice. Particularly I like the pieces of ice on the water. They add special winter flavour :-) to the scene.

This gull looks lonely. Nicely composed. Good light with great exposure. Crisp, clear sharp details. I love the reflection being mosaiced (if there is such a word) by the ice which looks like broken glass floating on the water. Nice work. TFS.

Brrr I like the ice in the water. I have to laugh Luc, I go out into the hot desert and you down to the cold river!! wildlife is everywhere.
Very nice composition, clarity and I like the reflection.

Always amazing how animals are so well adapted to their environment that weather is not much of a factor. We look at this and feel cold, and he is just fine. Excellent shot with a nice reflection in the icey water. Detail and clarity are excellent. Nice Shot!

Great shot showing the gull clearly and the ice on the water. Burr...

It does look so cold Luc. Ice on the water! It is good how these birds do adapt to conditions (very interesting notes), whereas I'd just freeze and not get out of bed, I think. I don't know snow at all, apart from a skiing holiday many years ago.
Good shot, dull cold colours, so real and true. Brrr, too cold for me.
TFS and have a good weekend Luc. It's wet and windy here right now.

I'll return to award you well deserved points & smiley.
