Cold feet

Cold feet

A Black-head Gull stands upon the ice of Hollingworth Lake in Littleborough as its feathers are buffeted by a gust of wind, almost making the sea bird appear to be shivering from the cold (their webbed feet do not sweat and the blood vessels restrict as the temperature drops, so they don’t feel the cold like us)!

*Shot on a Canon 600d 18mp dSLR using a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS mkll lens with settings at ISO-200, aperture at f/8, spot metering mode and an exposure time of 1/1000 seconds*
