The Art of Romance

This female Black-headed Gull was enjoying a quiet rest at Strumpshaw Fen when the male flew in and landed on top of her. He did what had to be done and immediately flew away again. The entire episode lasted about ten seconds. And they say the art of romance is dead ...

Great shot!
I'm jealous now. I'm just not good enough to catch a moment like that. Maybe some day...

Re: The Art of Romance

Nice capture - in all meanings.

Well done

(To quote the Small Faces - Wham Bam thankyou Mam)

Though of course gulls pairs up for nesting.

I like the expression of the bottom gull - 'Oh no, not again !'.

Like the picture too.
