[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured these 'Grey Headed Gull' (Chroicocephalus cirrocephalus) at Marievale Bird Sanctuary which is my destination mainly most of the Weekend :-)
Although I have already posted this species, but here I saw three of them and tried my best to maintain perfect COMPOSITION, EXPOSURE and DETAILS.
This species is also known as 'Grey Hooded Gull' and found in South America and Africa. Rare visitor in North America, Italy and Spain too.

Hello Srikumar,
What a lovely trio of Grey Headed Gulls in a curious pose. Heads up and very alert eyes make them quite photogenic. Their pinkish red mouths and beaks contrast nicely with their white and grey plumage. Excellent detail and perfectly exposed.

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of lovely Group, beautiful reflections, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Srikumar,
Excellent details of the white feathers and natural colors. Nice capture taken from a very good POV with the birds looking to the sky or to another bird.....

Hi Srikumar,lovely composition with the 3 gulls watching to the top,the quality is perfect despite the difficult light and the orange of the beacks is very bright too. I'm curious to read your comment about my last post (smile). Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

here I saw three of them and tried my best to maintain perfect COMPOSITION, EXPOSURE and DETAILS, beautiful catch.

Hi Sri,
You not only tried, you DID your best to maintain everything perfectly, and the result speaks for itself. Excellent odd number composition, great sharpness / details on the plumage, spectacular pose (especially the gull at right) and good use of the available light is what we get here. Absolutely splendid work, congratulations!
Kind regards, have a nice Christmas, László
