Iceland gull

Last week an Iceland gull showed up in Cork city. It stayed for about 3-4 days and gave plenty of opportunities for photos. So many in fact that it took several days to sort out all the shots. I am quite pleased with the results though. This bird provided a bit of a challenge as sunshine and white feathers overexposed a lot of my shots but I nonetheless got plenty of shots with the (almost) correct balance.

Gotta love the big eye and the 'dove' like features
