Default Gullible

I am working on developing some technique for my new tele lens. This challenge is a natural for that, so I decided to try my hand at BIF. Since this is a first attempt, I chose everyone's favorite begiinner bird, a gull. These shots worked out OK, so I offer them here:


This second one I cheated and offered a bribe of popcorn, which worked almost too well...

HAAA, Gull's can get aggressive where food is concerned...!

You've made a good start with your new lens...!

Hi tclune

Using a new toy (ie your tele-lens) is fun... and I'm glad you could get some shots.

Gulls are always good to have around and practice BIF shots on, or other general 'wildlife' techniques

Though I can also attest, they can be very brave and even rude when it comes to food!

Cheers

Paul
