  7. Fabulous images of the gull Gunilla!!! The sunlight makes it all the more perfect. I especially like the photo where the bird had its head tilted in such a quizzical look!!

    Happy Weekend to you

  11. Very cool, Gunilla! I have seen many GREATER black-backed gulls here around the Great Lakes but rarely a lesser black backed gull. I'm jealous. ;))
