Default ring-billed gull

went out to one of the parks along Puget Sound this afternoon, hadn't been there in years, and thought i'd see if i remembered it right... i did. while i was there, i managed a couple of shots of one of the gulls that were flying around... i don't normally waste memory space on sea gulls, but spring's coming, and i wanted to practice my BIF technique... 5D2, 24-105 @ 105mm (yep, these are cropped!), 1/500-1/800 @ f/6.3

Looks like you still got it. Nicely done on the exposure too.

Cheers Rocky,

Rocky,

Very fine details on the a flying gull! Great shots!

I can never shoot anything flying well enough to display, but only the one which can stand still enough for me to photograph.

Have a nice weekend!

Michael
