Gulls are very adaptive and also smart birds!
This guy here is making well use of the possibilities present...
Well composed image, good colours and fine details!

Hi John, these birds are always good to shoot at.
They certainly know the best places to sit and survey their territory.
I like where he's sitting today,

Splendid shot wherein you have captured a nice moment. Perfect lighting and focus. I like your POV and the blue sky as BG. Very realistic shot depicting a fine mood. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Trèes original, la nature et la ville en opposée, l'oiseau est très clair.
Different. If I didn't know it was a street lamp, I'd say it was the strangest kamode with skylight bottom I've ever seen ;}
Well I try to be humorous, so give me credit even when it goes in the kamode :)

Hi John, Very good capture of this large gull. It looks almost like a small albatross at a glance. Excellent details and colours visible. Good timing for this classic pose. TFS. Murray.

je ne sais pas si l'endroit est confortable mais cela a l'air de plaire a ce goeland!
attention a l'exposition qui est un peu trop presente ici a cause de la pose de 1/90.

Wow! Well spotted. Great capture. A little humouros. Great sharpness and colour. I like the frame too. Well done.
Best regards, Steve.
Is there nesting activity here John? Either that or sunbathing eh! I like the way you also included the lamp which gives an excellent idea about the size of this sizable bird! That is much harder to see in your previous shot, so this is an excellent follow-up. Tfs, Jay

Una muy divertida y linda foto, me gusta el inusual lugar que eligió esa gaviota para descansar, por lo visto la ha usado varias veces eh? Buen trabajo

A nice image of the gull, the phoot has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.
I know that shooting birds are all candid but this is one real candid shot of this gull. The lamp looks like it was tailor made for her.
Good details of the white area which is rather difficult when shot against the sky. I had a few white birds which never make it anywhere. I keep looking at this picture and I hope you won't mind me adding this to my personal theme.

Beautiful shot. The black and white bird siting against a bg of bright blue sky looks wonderful. Excellent pov.
