Hi guys here is another Gull in flight pose. TE member Mr. Nigel corrected me that this species is Ring Billed Gull rather than Thayer's Gull. Thank you Mr. Nigel.

Hi Anna,great timing to take this gull in the take off position,and great camera settings too to have very good detail and an excellent white,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Ring Billed or Thayer's ... GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY work anyway.
You are getting good at this.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello again, Anna
Your timing is very good here, but it is a sound rule of composition for a subject in motion that too much space behind the direction of travel unbalances the image. I have done a quick workshop that changes the composition and adjusts the colour balance a little. I hope you like the result.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hello Anna

You clicked the photo at the best time
in its low flight pose, superbly focused
with great sharpness and details, with superb
POV at the gull's level where with his low
flight it is giving dynamism to the image, TFS


Great in-flight capture of this Gull, Anna.
The bird is frozen in mid air at SS 1/1600.
White management is excellent in this shot too.
