    Default Another seagull

    I managed to get out of work early this afternoon, took a lot of shots of water birds. I saw this gull sitting by itself on a rock quite wary of me. Before it flew off I got this shot. Since it was early afternoon the light was quite harsh, but I think this shot ended up OK.

    I also got this one(not a great shot at all). There were a coulple of these with huge eyebrows. I have never seen these before. MA do know what it is?

    Kat already said it: The first shot is very fine and wonderful clear.

    The second has a nice head of hair ;-) - I am curious too, what its name is.

    I've done that before too, but fixed before too many noticed. Like MA said I should take as a compliment.

    2nd shot was just a snap, as I tried to get closer and more steady for a decent one, but he flew away.
