Two Thayer’s gulls. The brownish one is still a juvenile, but he’s about to get adult. The father is showing him around... ;)

Un giorno, figlio mio, tutto questo sarà tuo
Due gabbiani di Thayer. Quello con le macchie marroni è ancora giovane, sebbene stia per raggiungere l’età matura. Il padre gli sta mostrando la proprietà... ;)

@Gary: Ah ah! Thank you Gary! The "father" has such a proud expression that I could help giving this title :D

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of nature Canada &, United Kingdom

Such an apt title as nature dictates that soon the baby will fly the nest and make it's own way in life. A great angle to encompas both gulls as they survey the seascape and have a father and son moment. Well captured, Simone.

@SOUL AFLAME: Hi Paul! Your wording is always so fluid and it's a pleasure to read you. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comment!

Beautiful title.
The gray color makes this beautiful picture.
They fly a lot, but never photographed, too bad :-(
