Thank you for sharing this, Andres. It's a real beauty, and it really must be seen full-size!

Thank you very much for your kind comments, Marilyn!

I didn't upload it when I took it (2 months ago) because I thought it was too similar to the other one, but at last I decided to share it.

Thanks for visiting!

Greetings Andres, Great shot of the sea gulls. Reminds me of Hitchcock's "The Birds". It always amazes me the way the gulls can shadow a boat, looking for a hand out.

Thanks for your visit, Rich!

I never saw "The Birds," but looking at a couple of pictures I can see why my photo reminds you of it. Lots of nice bird silhouettes!


Ryan Calhoun on March 26, 2008

Wonderful addition, Andres! It is a similar theme as the other, but this photo has a different quality to it. The other one has a flock of seagulls aimlessly wheeling about, more of an introspective mood. But this one, with the bird at the center much closer and flying toward the camera, there is a much stronger sense of action. Also the backlit tail feathers are a great delicate detail.

Cheers, Ryan

Yes Ryan, the gull at the center of the picture was what made this photo worth uploading. The other ones don't have it :p

Thanks a lot for your compliments! It's always a pleasure to read that kind of comments.
