Yellow-legged Gull praying on Flamingo
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Adults are similar to Herring Gulls but have yellow legs. They have a grey back, slightly darker than Herring Gulls but lighter than Lesser Black-backed Gulls. They are much whiter-headed in autumn, and have more extensively black wing tips with few white spots, just as Lesser Black-backed. They have a red spot on the bill as adults, like the entire complex. There is a red ring around the eye like in the Lesser Black-backed Gull but unlike in the Herring Gull which has a dark yellow ring.|

Superbly sharp image of this member of the cleaning crew doing his job. Focus and exposure are excellent, great job Tom.
Superb light and great natural history moment!
