Poor black - headed gull... One of her legs has disappeared unexpectedly :D
If you're wondering about what's worth seeing in the cinemas, I will strongly recommend "A quiet place". Really worrisome and keeping in suspense.

This is an old trick. Gulls like to hide one leg in order to evoke pity for tourists...
As you can see by the comments below, that trick still works :P Gulls are really sly creatures :D
I knew it :-)
Nice flight shot! It is quite sad that it is often down to careless fishermen not taking tangled lines away. This eventually tangles round a birds leg.
I know this is a big problem :( But this gull had both legs on the right place - some cooperation between the bird and this strange photo made the gull looking like one - legged, although she had both.
I like the expression of this gull ! Great pic, but sad !
Thank you :) And don't worry - the gull was "whole". Somehow her second leg didn't "show up" on this photo, but I can testify, that she had two legs and was healthy :)
Awesome capture Ev! Superb! Looks like she's trying to do a gear-up landing! :-)
Yes, she has just pulled out the chassis :D Thank you, Bruce :)
