[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The slender-billed gull (Larus genei) is a mediterranean gull with some localised colonies in the Iberian Peninsula. Each year some 600-800 p breed in the Peninsula being the Ebro Delta the main site (some 400 p). The distribution is so localised that one can think visiting a nesting place that the species is abundant, but is probable that you can observe almost the whole colony in the region visiting a singular place. In Cadiz some 60 p breed. "Lá voilá" one of these reproduction units working to survive on the planet Earth.

En plus c'est décoratif et très esthétique. Jolie teinte.
Bonne journée.

Hi Carlos, (estoy practicando con el inglés). :-). Tiene unos colores preciosos, con una luz muy cálida y suave. No solo es una suerte poder contemplar a estas rarezas, sino además ser testigo de momentos como este. Como se dice por aquí, buen POV and DOF. Un saludo y TFS.
