Default Birds in NYC

Took the pentax k-x out for my afternoon bike ride, and stop to take some birds with it.

Love the shots of the gulls--especially the one of the confrontation!! Great ones in flight as well. Looks like you've got a goof handle on that K-x!

Not really, I just do not shoot it enough. I still get a bit lost with it. I blow 10 shot of people because I goof the setting. I will post the people shot in a minute. But I had better ones. Frame, but hit the wrong setting.

Beautiful series, shoturtle. Gulls are really fun to watch. They soar so beautifully. I'd have to drive up to Dustin's neck of the woods to get any pictures of them. I might get lucky down by the river, though.

Thanks Gary,

Not to shabby for the pentax k-x. I do not shoot it enough as it is not mine, but it is a very good camera.
