Larus michahellis with fishing line
It is a bit funny at first sight. Could be a fishing line. Quite inconvenient for that bird, I guess, as these lines, being very strong, are probably not easy to get rid of...
I hope your tour is going well. Now you are in Spain, I see.
This is an excellent shot showing one of our negative impacts on our environment: both the juvenile Yellow-legged Gull and the nylon fishing line showing sharply. Excellent BG and lighting too.
You can even see how tightly the line has wrapped itself around the leg, which could lead to disasterous consequences for this young bird.
Thanks and best wishes,
Well seen and captured.
Very unfortunate for the poor bird.
One wonders how long it will be able to survive if it cannot land or walk properly.
What a shame.

Dr senin martı ayağındaki misine ile uçurtma gibi çıkmış. Çok iyi yakalanmış bir poz. Umarım misinelerinden kurtulmuştur. Selamlar. Mustafa
An unfortunate subject, but a wonderful capture of it. Great focus and exposure (the light looks quite strong).
uzun süreden sonra ilk kuş fotonuz hayırlı olsun.
güzel pozlama netlik kadrajlama başarılı...
Sad to see that. Anyway, hope you find a way to help our friend there. Overall rating good.

This is a good illustration of something we see here too; birds struggling as they're entangled in fishing lines. It's very sad. Excellent in-flight capture though of this young Gull. Great sharpness and beautiful light.
TFS and regards, Ulla

A beautiful capture of this flying gull. Sorry for the fishing line on its leg. Hope it doesn't bother it much. Nice composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.
