Hi my Friends

Sometimes animals act like humans, they do something that in my mind or probably even yours, it is like they talking and showing their feeling. These actions usually are very normal mostly for pets like dogs or cats or mostly for horses. but i think birds are doing the same. I saw many times they talk to each other like a boy and a girl.
Here I will post a series about this birds(seagulls) which show their feeling. And the first one start with this shot. I like it, when i look at it, it seems for me that the bird say: give me a kiss, a kiss!!
what do you think?

(from wikipedia)
Gulls are seabirds in the family Laridae. They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae), and more distantly to the waders, auks and skimmers. Most gulls belong to the large genus Larus.

They are in general medium to large birds, typically grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They have stout, longish bills and webbed feet.

Most gulls, particularly Larus species, are ground nesting carnivores, which will take live food or scavenge opportunistically. The live food often includes crabs and small fish. Apart from the kittiwakes, gulls are typically coastal or inland species, rarely venturing far out to sea. The large species take up to four years to attain full adult plumage, but two years is typical for small gulls.

Gull in flightGulls—the larger species in particular—are resourceful and highly-intelligent birds, demonstrating complex methods of communication and a highly-developed social structure. Certain species (e.g. the Herring Gull) have exhibited tool use behaviour. Many species of gull have learned to co-exist successfully with man and have thrived in human habitats.

Hi Babak, kissing sea Gulls, great shot, good colors, BG, POV, DOF, perfect captue , TFS Kyle

Love is a common thread that binds species together, even human, though not always.
Great image captured in an urban setting, Babak.
Your perspective merges the two birds into a single image in a sort of dancing step.
Well done!
