[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gaviota cocinera.

The Kelp Gull (Larus dominicanus) breeds on coasts and islands through much of the southern hemisphere. The adult Kelp Gull has black upperparts and wings. The head, underparts, tail and the small "mirrors" at the wing tips are white. The bill is yellow with a red spot, and the legs are greenish. The call is a strident ki-och. Young birds have scaly black-brown upperparts, and a neat wing pattern. They take four years to reach maturity. Kelp Gulls are omnivores like most Larus gulls, and they will scavenge as well as seeking suitable small prey.

Hola Ferrán,
muy buena toma!!!!!! captaste un momento divino, la pose de las gaviotas es genial (ni que hubieran estado esperando que les sacaras una foto!).
Los detalles y los colores son muy buenos. LOgraste un buen juego de luces y BG, para que el blanco de las gaviotas se diferenciara del cielo.
buen trabajO!!
saludos y gracias por compartir tu trabajo con nosotros!
que tangas buen dia
