Enjoy this rare scene with the seagulls resting
and their reflection on the water.
Gulls or seagulls are birds in the family Laridae. They are most closely related to the terns (family Sternidae) and only distantly related to auks, skimmers, and more distantly to the waders. Until the twenty-first century most gulls were placed in the genus Larus, but this arrangement is now known to be polyphyletic, leading to the resurrection of several genera.
Gulls are typically medium to large birds, usually grey or white, often with black markings on the head or wings. They typically have harsh wailing or squawking calls, stout, longish bills, and webbed feet. Most gulls, particularly Larus species, are ground-nesting carnivores, which will take live food or scavenge opportunistically. Live food often includes crabs and small fish. Gulls have prophylactic unhinging jaws which allow them to consume large prey. Apart from the kittiwakes, gulls are typically coastal or inland species, rarely venturing far out to sea
The large species take up to four years to attain full adult plumage, but two years is typical for small gulls. Large White-Headed Gulls are typically long-lived birds, with a maximum age of 49 years recorded for the Herring Gull.
Gulls nest in large, densely packed noisy colonies. They lay two to three speckled eggs in nests composed of vegetation. The young are precocial, being born with dark mottled down, and mobile upon hatching.

Κωνσταντίνε γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη σκηνή με τους γλάρους στο σφικτό κάδρο να φαίνεται να έχουν συγκέντρωση.Οι αντανακλάσεις των μπροστινών γλάρων συμπληρώνουν το όλο σκηνικό.

Kalispera dear Costantino
I really like how you have composed this shot. It is very sharp and there is a wonderful symmetry in the reflections and the positions of the seagulls. The silvery and white tones are very attractive and the image has been contrasted strongly and expertly. Excellent work!
