I was on the ferry for Tallinn when i took this picture. At the beginning i just wanted to take a picture of the brown seagull which was flying alone above me. I took my picture and when i checked my camera's screen there was one more seagull on the picture (the white one). He arrived while i didn't notice him and that's why his right wing is a bit outside of the frame. But anyway it was a good surprise!

Truly a great shot - you got those bird at a very fine moment - Been added to the Seagull theme where something like this can be seen - thanks Maeva for sharing your fine capture.

Definately MUCH better with the 2nd seagull. What a great piece of luck. It seems true that the best photos sometimes come when we dont plan for them. Very nice.

well, yes, that's one shot we won't see duplicated too often on TE. Bravo!

I like the way light affects the seagulls.
Sometimes, taking pictures of birds against the sky is not so easy.

on dirait la patrouille de france bien synchro.
nice shot because it's hard to take de pictures at the good moment.

Really nice. One looks like the shadow of the other. I think the black frame is a bit too thick.
