Black Headed gull

With this shot of a Black Headed gull in its typical summer coat, I say bye bye for some time, as I’m going on holiday tomorrow.
Hope to see you all safe and sound within a few weeks.

    Sorry, Mark, I cannot compete with yours ;-) absolutely stunning with the light coming in and the background more or less dark which makes it even more interesting. I sent my pics to friends in the US and each time I have to look up the word for animals, flowers etc. and the word for this one has nothing to do with the German version (laughing seagull). Maybe I should go through your file since you translate everything, very nice! Have a wonderful Easter weekend even though it will be cold. LG Jack

    Das waren noch Zeiten... Sommer, Sonne und die Lachmöwen in ihrem schönen Prachtkleid! Schön die Nähe und die Verteilung von Licht und Schatten!
    Gruß, Gunther

    shot of the black-headed gull – i like gulls a lot, and this one's chocolate brown feathers round the eyes are beautiful! (the guy who named them must have been distracted or color-blind ; ))). this will sound ignorant, but i never knew that gulls changed feathers with the seasons at all!! so thanks for providing me with that information! pretty frightening too, that they are in their winter coats already – might mean we'll get an early, cold and long one… greetings, sabine.

    Great macro.
    European seagulls seem to be more sophisticated.
