Larus michahellis

Larus michahellis

This Herring Gull (Gabbiano reale in italian) was taking off from the top of the "Chiesa del Rosario o di San Domenico" in Gallipoli.

In Italy there are a lot of species of orchids, mainly in Southern Italy and in the Islands, so when we are near Gallipoli or in Sardinia a trip to take photos is [...]
