Hi Janice. What a great compostion. with one behind the other. Very good detail and colour. the bill and eyes have sharp focusing. ,with a nice POV/DOF. very well done TFS, good notes too.
A two headed gull?..howed you do dat! ;)
Nice exposure, details, color, and POV. An interesting, albeit unusual post today mf..And your gull should see a specialist right away! That beak sticking out of the back of it's head, and swollen throat should be looked after ;-}}

An unusual POV along with an unusual subject make for an interesting photo. I have never seen a seagull like these. Nice focus on the difficult white. Bright vivid colors show well against the semi-dark BG. Well done.

Good morning (when you get this) Janice,
Stunning double capture of the Red-billed Gull stretching his neck like his companion behind him the two making a fine image. I also like the detail of the nearest, his beady white eye with red border making it look like a little target. Nice contrasting dark BG.

This photo makes me smile, since at first glance it looks like a single gull with a beak on each side of its head. Cleverly done!

Good photo. A little deceptive at first from the thumbnail, ' A bird with 2 beaks, what!!!' hehe. It looks good and the colours are very vivid on the beaks and the eye is so sharp.

My first impression was the same like Matt's. What's that. A bird with two heads?? Nice exposure, details, color, and POV. I have never seen a seagull like these. So you see we are not to old to learn (-: Thanks for sharing and the interesting notes. Regards and TFS Bob

This is a very original picture :) I like the way it is composed and exposed. Those red beaks surely stand out well on this beautiful grey BG. This is well seen! Thanks,

Hello dear Janice,
I come back after holidays and I discover this strange bird with 2 beaks :-)) Exposure, sharpness and DOF are very good. Bravo for this funny photo !
Thanks once again for your visit and positive comments. It has only been an adventure and incredible learning experience but I would not have been able to achieve any of this if it was not for Loot’s incredible knowledge in the technical aspects of photography and the love he has for nature that rubbed off on me. I am sure you will soon start to get fed up with me, not returning to your latest posting. Please bear with me. I have missed out so many beautiful photos and it will take a while to catch up. This is such a lovely close-up you have of the "Squabbling Red-Billed Gulls". The red eye and shiny red beak is adorably stunning. Red and white is definitely a perfect match. The blurred gull with its open beak in the background rounds of this photo well. Thanks for sharing.

Very beautiful composition & sharp photograph of the squabbling Red-Billed Gulls. The expression & details of the eye is too good. TFS.
