|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The Caspian gull (Larus cachinnans) is a large gull and a member of the herring and lesser black-backed gull complex. The scientific name is from Latin. Larus appears to have referred to a gull or other large seabird, and cachinnans means "laughing", from cachinnare, "to laugh".
The Caspian gull breeds around the Black and Caspian Seas, extending eastwards across Central Asia to north-west China. In Europe it has been spreading north and west and now breeds in Poland and eastern Germany. Some birds migrate south as far as the Red Sea and Persian Gulf while others disperse into Western Europe, in countries such as Sweden, Norway and Denmark or the Benelux and even North of France. Small numbers are now seen regularly in Britain, especially in South-east England, East Anglia and the Midlands.

Got familiar with this bird during my visit to Western Australia and found it much fearless, a perfect eye contact shot as well exposed and composed.
What a composition with that interesting perch, Marius!
The white balance is so very perfect all shades of colour merge seamlessly with it.
Very Nice color and composition, Marius.
Beautiful picture, mainly like tge way you managed background. Well focus and exposure on such white part. Recently, I've captured a Grey headed Gull, will post one day.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
