A couple of gulls. The first is only resized and he definitely uses cottonelle (toilet tissue). The second is a fair crop. Tried to remove the wire but he was too close to it and too big in the original frame to adjust it much.

I've posted pictures of lots of small birds on this post, never had a buzzard land on it in front of me before though, this is about 9 or 10 metres away from where I'm sat, and it stayed there and eat too!

Nice image- fills the frame, and both geese are sharp.

WOW EB...this GBH shot is definitely a winner! Outstanding capture for sure!

Beautiful EB--I love the way the composition flows!

Thanks both, appreciate the feedback. Had a bit too much lens on, but just managed to squeeze him into the frame!

Beautiful capture, Manny! The egret looks so cool against the green background.

Very nice composition in this image, Mike! I find the close positioning of the geese very interesting. And you've nailed the color and detail, not to mention the appealing wisps of clouds.
