Gull in flight

Gull in Flight - Photo by Alex Leonard

Photo Description

A snap-second capture of a seagull as it passed quite close to me.

You really don’t get much time to think when birds are in flight – let alone time to focus. However this photo was fairly well focussed and I liked it enough to keep it.

I keep meaning to bring a load of bird feed down to the sea-shore and spend some time feeding the birds and taking photos. It might help if I had a slightly longer range lens though.

I haven’t taken too many other nature shots so I’m all ears on comments or feedback!
