Here again my gull friend flight away to home. This day the sky was so pretty, no clouds and with a intense blue!
I saw the lyrics of a music that sounds good here with the photo:
"So lovely the blue sky looks and so lovely the things around.
See love glittered my eyes and happiness surrounds.
It seems in a moment everything has changed like a lovely world I found."
Gulls (often informally called seagulls) are birds in the family Laridae. 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.
Photo took at Forno Beach

What I like to seagulls is that they are exactly the same,wherever you go...We do have a lot of them here in Europe and they actually cause some problems by opening all the waiste bags in the streets to find some food...
But well,they are anyway beautiful birds,no?
And this one is from Rio!...

excelelnt the minimalistic snapshot from the flying and lonely seagull that is placed perfect in the frame.
I like the contrast of the colours as the as the light management of the image.
Have a good day,danos

Excellent simple graphic aspect this photo, it is empty but filled at the same time. I feel the loneliness of watching this picture, it is very sad and very well mastered, one gets the impression of this lonely with no one, no friend, and that feeling is very well photographed.

Du beau travail. La mouette est très nette et parfaitement placée dans l'image.

magnífica captura de la gaviota en pleno vuelo, en una imagen muy nítida, bien iluminada y con una alta calidad cromática.
La composición es sencilla, directa y potente.

tirei algumas fotos de gaivotas este ano, mas nenhuma ficou assim tão bacana. muito bonito o enquadramento com o azulão do céu num lado e a gaivota com todo o espaço para avançar. linda foto.
