Wow! That takes my breath away! I don't know that I've ever seen such amazing art in a free study as I have this month. This would probably win a blue ribbon in any other challenge!

Thanks to everyone for your comments and votes. I happened to catch this gull as it was landing on ice. It slid and had trouble keeping its balance.

The clarity in this is stunning. Amazing and beautiful seagull image! Congrats on your great finish.

haha! This reminds me of a shot that I was considering!

I love his yellow feet, but the yellow eyes makes the shot. Nice capture! (just a nit-pick--it looks a tad dark on my screen)

Wow! This is the best picture of a seagull I have ever seen. The clarity is fantastic. I love the reflection of the feet on the ice.
