Seagull taken at the seaside in De Haan, Belgium.
Notice the red spot on the beak.

Gulls are birds in the family Laridae. They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae), auks and skimmers, and more distantly to the waders. Most gulls belong to the large genus Larus.

They are in general medium to large birds, typically grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They have stout, longish bills and webbed feet. (from Wikipedia the free encyclopedia)

Great close-up of the in-flight gull. The detail and exposure is outstanding!

Salut Vincent,
La magnifique photo que voila. Cela ne m'étonne pas.
Tu vas sans doute nous faire profiter de tes merveilles.
Le cadrage est superbe.
Magnifique contraste entre le bleu du ciel (et quel ciel) et la blancheur du plumage.
J'aime beaucoup la façon dont tu as préservé les détails dans les hautes lumières.
