    Well you can see I had this way higher! I thought this was an uncommonly good shot of a common gull.

    He looks like a very solid fellow. The off centre crop works really well.

    Oh wow what a beauty!
Looks like the poor bird is freezing .. he looks so human too. Love the blues, just the right positioning too.

    For a gull portrait, it looks just fine to me. The colour I take it is because the gull is young? Nicely done.
