[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gulls are, perhaps, the most ubiquitous of all aquatic birds available, both along seashores and riverbanks.

Just another shot of a Gull - probably a Herring Gull Juvenile.

Hi Subhayan,

Good capture of the gull... Good lighting and composition.. The details on the wings and colors are lovely.. TFS


Bonjour Subhayan,
Agréable valorisation du sujet par sa bonne opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Subhayan,

Hope you are well and spring must slowly be merging into a harsh summer ahead. This is a very good shot of the gull, for these are fast birds and difficult to capture in the air. The gull stands out amazingly against the bright blue sky.Its posture is perfect as are the focus and sharpness. Thanks a lot for sharing a wonderful photo and thanks also for your very good comments to my photo....stand obliged...take care....warmest regards/abid

Hi Subhayan,

Hello Subhayan.
Nice in flight capture of this gull against the spotless blue sky. The light catching on the spreading wings is fabulous.

Hello Subhayan,
Overhead inflight shots are not always the easiest to do. Many time you lose detail due to underexposed images, but you managed quite well in this shot. The lighting is just right, allowing us to see the attractive wing markings and beautiful natural colors. Well done!!
