By the time I made this picture I was using a compact camera.I had to be very patient to come closed to this seagull.It was my fist experience of "patience".At first I sat on the ground about 6 m. away from the bird, a distance he/she felt comforatable with.I talked to him/her.I told that I was here just to make a picture and he/she is safe.I made very small movements towards the bird.When I saw a sign of uneasiness I didin't move for a long long time at all.I kept on communicating with the bird (actually very easy as if I would do it with a pet at home).I made always very small movements and waited for long time for comforting the bird. After about 2 hours I was sitting at a distance of 3 m. to him/her and made this shot.This was also the limit he/she allowed.I was very surprised that I could get so closed to this wild bird.
