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.

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!

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!

I am resurfacing after processing a 1000s of photos from our holiday in Sabah, the Malaysian part of Borneo. Here is the photo on the first morning that made the trip for me: a crested serpent eagle flying with a serpent in its talons! 5DIV + 400mm DO II at f/4. The combo focusses so quickly for BIF.
