I have been reorganizing my album and list all in flight gulls shots from my A300mmF4 lens . They are the most uninspiring bird. There is an abundance of them and they were mainly my practice/test subjects


































For some of the close shots I needed to duck for cover

Daniel I really don't agree that they are uninspiring. Certainly not on the pictures you posted.

Really like the 3rd and last shot.

I can't se how something that can fly, dive and swim should be something mundane. And you really show the beauty in them, Daniel. These shots show how far you can come when you put an effort intolearning your equipment and practise using it.:|

Very nice, Daniel. I really like the last one. I know he's just landing, but it's almost like he's looking at himself in the mirror.

Good job.These are not mundane at all!

They might be opportunistic scavengers and not very inspiring, but they sure are photogenic - the third one is awesome with the pattern on the feathers. I remember the last one from when you posted it before and I think its just as good this time as I thought it was the first time I saw it.

Thanks for the nice comment. I did post some image earlier and this is a compilation of practice gull shots

Ronny,
Thanks. But actually the difficult one (with a lot of distraction though) is the first one. Mainly because of the very powerful backlight, the features of the spread-out tail and wing feather could not have been more vibrant than that just right that split second. If not for the little imperfection.....
I can always try. There will be opportunities
