Welcome to the forum, Christopher. Nice shout you got there! I like the angle you captured the bird. It almost looks like you were up high as well!

That bird looks so determined. The first shot is well done.

Aloha

Actually, the bird was low. I was at the waters edge, and it came directly towards me about 15 feet off the ground. I was originally going to get him as he went over my head, but the lack of vertical movement at this angle made it easier to track him when fully zoomed. Plus, I didn't want to get bombed on. I swear seagullsKNOW exactly when to let loose...



Funny that you are going to be here in August. I was just in San Jose/San Fran for Independence Day.

That explains the angle (and confirms that youwere not flying:-)).
