Hi Stuart.
Very nice shot, near me it tends to be buzzards circling too far away and when you get to where they were they are somewhere else and don't seem to come back, or if they do the crows come and chase them off.

Cheers, Graham.
Edit to remove duplicate of the photo.

I spent the afternoon getting shots of turkey vultures on top of a small local mountain. There are always at least 40 of them soaring around on sunny days and the often come quite close. I was having a good day untill a bald eagle showed up and the vultures scattered. Of course the eagle was to far for pictures  >:(

Very special effect clbayley! Is the reflection in the water just below? Post processed to hide the water itself?
The reflection does put the gull in context! Well done!

Hi clbayley.
Nice shot of a common subject.

Cheers, Graham.

+1 nice shot, but common subject? Bill is more hooked than black-headed gull. Head is more black than chocolate brown. For location (California ?) Laughing gull or Franklin's gull more likely. Either species would get my birder friends twitching here in U.K.

Thanks!  I was in a canoe in the middle of a lake and these Franklin's Gulls were circling around me plucking bugs off the water.  Most of the time they had a dark background (like this one).  This one flew into the light so the water is completely blown out.  I do admit photoshopping a few remnant reflections catching wave tips, but the white was out of the camera.

Thanks for the explanation!
You're brave - taking camera in a canoe on a lake; swinging it around to capture these gulls...  :o
Second picture is nice too - with the water droplets capturing the light!

Hi Alan.
Great shot, very cool to see him living up to his name (unless you are a snake!).
