Horsehay - Yellow -legged Gull

I spend a lot of time taking 'record shots' of Gulls inh the gloom - all part of the educational process and 90% of them never see the light of day! I normally hate bright sunshine as mantle 'colours' are often easier to judge in overcast conditions. Well today, the sun came out, I took plenty of images and made the most of it with an adult Yellow-legged Gull. To make a composite sequence.....

The entry.....

Before loafing on the water, quite distant!

A bit of patient waiting to catch the take off!

And then trees forming a contrasting background.

It's not easy taking near overhead flight shots from the confines of a car!!

Gliding away.....

Merry Christmas everyone!!
