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.
