Gull Larus ridibundus has a new strategy for my fishing.
Gull sees a potential prey on water . When gull locates prey, flying upward slightly, then dives to dive and catch it.
The seagull is quite successful.

La gaviota Larus ridibundus tiene una estrategia de esca nueva para mi.
Mientras la gaviota nada sobre el agua observa sus posibles presas. Cuando la gaviota localiza la presa, se alza un poco volando y cae en picado para sumergirse y atraparla.
La gaviota tiene bastante éxito.
Nikkor 400 3,5 ais.

Hello Roberto,
Perfectly timed and displaying exceptional detail. I love the way it's tail is backlit, which gives it an illuminated effect. Your choice of a 1/800 shutter speed has frozen the action perfectly. The water droplets are an added bonus. Well done!!

Hi Roberto.
What a timing, what a wonderful pictured scene. DOF precise. Details of the gull is great and surroundings are blurred greatly. Bokeh is really fine. Well done.
