Male and female Skua Gulls
A detailed photograph of a male and female Skua Gull with their mouths open standing on the fine gravel shore. The male Skua has his wings spread out behind him.
The print has a typed caption: 'Skua gulls, male and female. Jan 6th 1911.'
The caption in 'The Great White South' is 'Beginning to 'taxy'. Antarctic Skua-Gulls.' Ponting described them as not'...altogether pleasant neighbours, for they were extremely noisy and of a most quarrelsome disposition...' (page 214).
