Tell me Jean-François, how did you get the gulls at those treps with one empty one between each of them? Great shot! Good eye!!!

Jean-Francois Schmutz

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 :) #45141

Joy Brown

Great shot, Jean-Francois! #45245

Jean-Francois Schmutz

Thank you Joy,

maybe inspiration comming from your 3 squirrels :)


Mark Oxley

I love this Jean-Francois!! Perfect composition and razor sharp detail. #45294

Jean-Francois Schmutz

Thank you Mark,

this 3 beast are not so wild, compared with those which I saw in your gallery ! #45313

Wayne Attridge

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. #46345

Jean-Francois Schmutz

Hehe, thanks a lot for your comment Wayne.

I will think about your glue idea for a further shot with my childrens, they never stay in place :) #46388
