Une vue sur un goéland à bec cerclé, il fait parti de l'ordre des Charadriiformes et de la famille des Laridés. La photo a été prise du stationnement de l'hôtel lors d'un séjour de trois jours à Yellowknife vers 2154 heure de cette région.

A view of a Ring-billed gull, it is part of the Charadriiformes order and of the Larides family. The photo was taken from the parking lot of my hotel during a three days holiday in Yellowknife around 954PM time of that region.

I think here it is not the image itself, but the location. If one looks in a certain direction and does not see in all, then one can get lost.

Hi Pierre,
another graceful flying bird is captured by you. The soft blue sky gives a good canvas backgrond to this lovely subject.
Well positionred too at the corner givieng a good sense of freedom to the bird.
Nice composition.


bonjour Pierre

une très belle photo du Goéland à l'envol avec un excellent POV
et surtout pour le cadrage en laissant cette belle espace
devant l'oiseau, excellent focus avec netteté et détails,
belle luminosité venant sur l'oiseau, TFS


Hello Pierre,

This is a fine in-flight capture with good details in the bird!
The presentation is well composed with appealing simplicity, fine colour palette...
Is it only me or is this gull a bit overfed hehehe..!
