Our gull is still around and it was a sunny day today. The first shot below is uncropped and gives a view of the gull being a tough guy and the harbor beyond. Click on it to see larger version. There are some gulls in the background but not as many as usual. Click on the second one to see a set of pictures which look really nice as a slideshow. Especially the tonsil and scratching shots.

I am always learning also. Today for instance, was the first time I used continuous auto-focus. That second shot I never could have gotten before. The bird came in low over the ice, shot up the wall as high as you see him, then landed. Had I used the auto-focus that locks on when you depress the button half way he would have landed before the shutter closed. Same thing with a few of the wing spread shots in the flickr set.

For the two below, the fist was 1/800 second, the next was 1/1300. I had the camera set for aperture priority and speeds ran the gamut from 1/200 to 1/2000 with most being 1/800 or above. The one at 1/2000 was before I noticed I had the camera set at ISO 400. If you want to check a particular one in the flickr set the EXIF data for each picture can be accessed from the detail section of the lower right page where it says more properties under the camera name.

I love the clarity of your gull shots. The first one is really nice in the large size.
