Took the first three shots on Monday, tracking this Gull for about 200 feet.

The last two were taken last week, and this Gull tried hard to escape the viewfinder

In this last shot, the Gull had some choice words about "model realease" or something similar.

Here's a better look, although maybe this is TOO close a crop

Very good captures Dave. The first three are the winners for me but only because you got the hole bird. But no doubt about it, had you gotten all of him, #4 would have been the winner. The way the wings are at the time and the perfect exposure. All it needed was the rest of him. :lol: But for sure, tomorrow is another day, right.

I don't think he would have fit....

It's almost a FF shot.
