Sometimes wildlife is more tied to us, to our cities, than what we think. This black-headed gull is taking advantage of the glass roof of the Great Court of the British Museum in London for an easy supply of food. In big towns in UK mainland is common to see even big flock of gulls living in symbiosis with the environment, given the chance to access scraps of food and other human related sources. Luckily I had the telephoto lens with my small mirrorless camera, so I had the chance to take this picture of the bird framed in the very intriguing geometries of the stunning metal structure of the roof. I think this kind of scenes of urban wildlife are just perfect in a dramatic and high contrast black and white rendition.
