[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gulls have only a limited ability to dive below the water in order to feed on deeper prey. In order to obtain prey from deeper down many species of gull feed in association with other animals, where marine hunters drive prey to the surface when hunting. Examples of such associations include four species of gull feeding around plumes of mud brought to the surface by feeding grey whales, and also between orcas (largest dolphin species) and kelp gulls (and other seabirds).

Nice close-up with good zoom towards object. Well done.


Hi Sezai

Sometimes I'm amazed. 51 viewers and only one comment. But now, having looked, I see you do not comment on other people's photos, so its no surprise.

A stunning photo in my opinion. Beautiful warm colour and an attractive silhouette of the bird, which is well placed within the frame. Simple and simply stunning.

A very nice shot against such colourful sunset
