Taken at Hardwick hall, I like the light and the shadows waited forever for the bird to fly off I liked the nest on his head better than the bird. That bird sure had a brain not sure if it went to the top floor but it sure was determined to stay put, to many people around to take other measures. as if I would.

Gulls are a great social leveler, they really have no respect...
I think I prefer V2 here, it puts more emphasis on the foreground.

Each works in its own right so well, they are brilliant shots in the true sense of the word. So, I vote for both, John!

One of the many reasons why I love gulls and these images illustrate their irreverence beautifully.

The bird is probably afraid of that forked stick-- maybe it thinks he can control it by sitting on the nest!??? ??

Neptune looks wonderful on the Serpentine Lake, John, and I think the bird is a real bonus. The mono version is my favourite.
