I'm not sure if this seagull has only one leg or he is trying the common "hide the leg and maybe I'll get fed" trick.

Nice job, I focus right to the bird in the lower corner but the rest of the frame has interest as well 8

Great title! I like the photo a lot -- I just feel that DOF is not shallow enought here. I feel that the birds on the background should have been either more in focus or less in focus -- my eyes are drawn to them and away from the bird on the foregroud.

did the poor thing only have one leg? how sad! It reminds me of my seagull shot. Great dof.

Nice capture. I love the one-legged stance, and your depth of field is perfect.
