[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Questo Ŕ un esemplare adulto di Larus michaellis. Questo piumaggio lo raggiungono dopo circa tre anni. I giovani sono scuri macchiati. Anche il colorre del becco e delle zampe diventa giallo solo in etÓ adulta. Nei giovani il becco Ŕ nero e le zampe grigie.
La macchia rossa sul becco serve ad i nidiacei per stimolare la madre a rigurgitare il cibo. I nidiacei quando arrivano i genitori cercano di beccare la macchia rossa. Naaturalmente serve anche per stimolare quest'ultimi.Questa foto Ŕ stata scattata con una sensibilitÓ di iso 200. l'obiettico era con una lunghezza focale di 170 mm.

Hello Emilio,
You have captured L. michaelis very well in flight and composed your photo beautifully. Sharpness and colours excellent.
Thank you,
Regards, Ivan

Hi Emilio,
Very good inflight. Composition and exposure are very good. The harsh light would have been difficult to control. I'm not 100% sure about the frame you have used here, it is a little strong for my liking and detracts from the subject.
