Snowy Common Gull

A flock of Common Gulls winters in my local park. Today they have been perfecting their dancing on ice skills as the pond is mostly frozen. They seemed to feel safe on the ice, some of them even sitting for a rest on the ice. This handsome adult one sat nicely for a portrait. I like how snow on the ground makes seagulls look a purer white.


  1. A perfect portrait! I am starting to like Gulls more and more even though I seem to get only Blackheaded one here.

  2. Thank you Toffeeapple! Common Gulls have such gentle expressions, I cannot help but taking their portraits.
