Funny poses for these gulls

Again I have some problems with the ID of these gulls.
The right one seems to be a yellow-footed species, but I cannot give the specific name.
Thanks in advance for your eventual help.

Thanks to Pierre Heimann for his kind help. These are again two specimen of Larus ridibundus.

Hello Anne,
Nice action photo of these gulls. Difficult for the ID. For me it both looks like Black-headed Gulls. The left one an adult in winter plumage, the right one a juvenile. But I'm not sure.

Superb capture.....

Ciao Anne, great action shoot, lovely composition with beautiful couple, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonsoir Anne,
Il doit peut-être manqué d'un tout petit peu de vitesse mais l'attitude des sujets, saisie à l'instant décisif, est pour le moins très originale.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Anne,

Very expressive photo. It looks a bit like a painting. Artistic shot. My compliments.


Bonjour Anne,
une image très spéciale et un moment étonnant. Bien fait!
Il s'agit la bien de deux exemplaires de Larus ridibundus, la mouette rieuse. L'oiseau de droit étant un jeune.
meilleures salutations

Wonderful photography, a true ballet. I love the dance move Gull left. It would be interesting for you to continue with some more photos of this series on seagulls ... A hug.


Wonderful composition.
Sharpness and colour is also superb.
Best wishes.

This looks like an artists' canvass, my dear friend Anne!!
Is this pic cropped? I simply love this pic!! No words to describe!!

Looking like a race who can land first.

Nice shot.


Liebe Anne,
dramatisches Tausendstel ein Sekunde.
Man meint die Möwe schreien zu hören.
Prima Schnappschuss, präzise im Detail und souverän in der Komposition, ganz wie gewohnt.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss,

Bonjour Anne

WOW ! superbe photo d'action, surtout la pose du goéland du haut,
si tu aurait pu reproduire les mêmes détails dans le plumage du
goéland du bas que celui du haut, la photo aurait était encore supérieure, TFS


Impressive and beautiful photo Anne! Excellent composition, wonderful lighting and good sharpness!
