This photograph is taken in Shinobazu Pond in Tokyo Ueno. Shinobazu Pond is one area of a few of the parks of the metropolitan area where it is in one corner of the site in Ueno Park, and a Tokyoite relaxes. It was a small bay in Tokyo Bay at the time of the Jōmon period(14,000 BC - 300 BC) this whole place. It is left with retreat of the coastline after that, and it is thought that it became the pond around several era century. And, the pond was divided into four by the embankment work in 1929. Moreover, the business of the rented boat which continues till the present was started in 1931. Although the season was entered in April, I could see many seagulls in this pond. It had stopped so that it might sunbathe in response to spring warm sunlight on the stake stood around a pond. It is visible to Tokyo Skytree in the distance and Bentendō at right-hand side. Although the tortoise was sunbathing pleasantly on the stand of the tree in the end of a pond, a seagull has flown and has stopped on the tortoise's upper shell. Its spectacle was humorous to me. I do not know whether the tortoise has noticed the bird of the back and has felt it heavy.

An amazing sight how each seagull found his (personal) pole to stand on.
Also, on the second photo, one is exploiting a turtle that went to get some sun-rays himself.
Well spotted, good DOF and clarity, fabulousely shown on pictures.
My cong.'s. Have a nice weekend,

I guess Japan is beautiful country when scenes like this one can be found and photographed in big cities such as Tokyo. There is a bird on every pole. Amazing order, only possible in Japan. Even birds have discipline. I also like how you added second photo of a bird on the right. Now I see that it even stands on turtle which is great:)

This looks like a very nice park and the seagulls look well-fed. Thanks for another pretty collage.
PS. I notice that you uploaded a color-corrected WS entry to your previous photo. I think I like the original (the main entry) without the color correction. The slightly off-colors give it a magical look.
