[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Herring gulls are a very common species of bird and can be found in almost any waterfront locale, including the east and west coast of North America, as well as European countries such as England, Sweden, Turkey and Greece.

Seagull is actually the common name for a species of birds more formally known as herring gulls (Larus argentatus). Herring gulls mature in about four years, and their coloring changes frequently during the maturation process, from mottled, to gray, to white with gray features. Often thought of as pests, seagulls are actually environmentally friendly birds, as they help keep beaches clean and feed on garbage left by eco-unfriendly humans.

Seagulls have also been featured in the media, most notably, Richard Bach's bestselling book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, about a particular seagull who is ostracized from his flock because he lives to perfect his flying ability. It is a quite enjoyable, multi-faceted book that will give you a new respect for seagulls.

Hi Alp,

A different shot with excellent colors,however picture is a bit OOF otherwise it could be a winner,


Bu gerçektende sıradışı ve harika bir uçuş fotoğrafı! İnanılması güç güzellikte bir ışık sözkonusu. Notların arasında böyle bir kareyi nasıl yakaladığınıda okumak isterdim. Gerçektende inanılması güç bir kare, harika bir sunum, sanki rüya gibi! Tebrikler gerçektende, bu fotoğrafın bu kadar az ilgi görmeside aynı şekilde inanılmaz olsa gerek.
