Hubby and i were down at the beach car park with a box of hot chips/fries, the gulls were hanging around for scraps when we noticed one with a deformed leg who could not get anything because he was just not fast enough. he ended up sitting on the front of the car so hubby started putting a chip out the window and he eventually caught on. I was in the passenger seat with my 300d and the kit lens, not the greatest shots but fun.

sorry these were the only three that worked out, the little kit lens is not fast and i got heaps of shots of the legs of the bird or hubbys arm alone, the rest were badly over exposed

Fantastic shots, I like the curve of the wings in the first one.

These are very nice. I like the sharpness you captured on the bird.

I read recently that town seagulls in Australia do have a higher cholesterol and are heavierthan the ones on Islands away from humans, probably because of the takeout food I guess:-)

Ive seen these guys raid bins for scraps with crows joining in as well:-)have to say we dont do this too often
