It's amazing you caught the bird so close. Is this a cropped image?

Looks as if you were flying along side it.

Good contrast of the bird against the water.

Hello Ahamed.

The picture is not cropped, I was on a large boat and the bird was flying close to the boat almost touching the sea.

Nice capture. One of my favorite gull shots I've seen.

Beautiful image. I watch these birds fly just above the water, almost touching it, going up and down with the waves. You really captured that feeling here.

Wow! Amazing! I love your photos - how did you get so close? or what sort of zoom do you have?
