A photographer has captured the hilarious moment a gull flails around the water attempting to wash its back.
Fatih Keles, was visiting a botanical park in his hometown of Istanbul, Turkey, when he came across a gull in the water.
The gull appeared to be bathing itself – but humorously rolled about as it tried to get its back.
Fatih said: “The gull looked as though it was trying to clean its back – it was a really funny moment.
“In the early morning the gulls love cleaning themselves and in the photo the gull was trying to clean its back in a different way.
“When I was taking this sequence of photographs I had a smile on my face and thought it was very funny!”
