Hello Cees,
thanks for your nice comment !

For the Gulls, its was so easy ! they were 6 before I trowed some breed in water, 3 flying directly on the breed, but those 3 on the picture prefer cookies and waiting to see what I have in my other hand :)

This is a terrific shot. The gulls are in a perfectly straight line. Are you sure you didn't Photoshop them in?? Or glue plastic birds to the steps? Nature is amazing. Good work. Nice balance.

I will think about your glue idea for a further shot with my childrens, they never stay in place :)
