Default The other bird

Most folks waited for the eagles... I shot the lesser bird just as much fun:

This is a surprise for me to see a Ring-billed Gull to catch a fish. The ones in my area are scavengers feeding on pop corn and bread people thrown at them. Other times they feed on little clams and mussels.

Love the action in the first shot. I use seagulls to practice my panning technique.

Also most if not all my pictures are geo-tagged (i.e. if you use Chrome, hover over the GPS label of the EXIF-viewer plugin and it'll show you the location of where the image was taken)

I tried the 7D Mark II. Man this is a huge improvement over the original 7D. For those who are trying to evaluate the 7D mark II, this is not a 7D's upgrade. Its more like a cropped 5D Mark III with a fast 1D fps included in it.

The cameras AF is definitely close to pro cameras and probably better than the 1d Mark III.

The 7D mark II will make BIF pictures far more easier for photographers. The flexibility of AF settings is huge and it actually works in those different settings.

I am tempted but i am holding my temptation. Thats purely because i am smitten by A7 II and waiting for the A7S II
