Very nice mid-air action for a fist attempt, you cracked it nicely, well framed and composed, excellent lighting and colours, all the best Cheers Rick :)

I too have the greatest respect for those of you who do "bird in flight" photos well - it's not easy, but these seagulls are good to practice on.
Good job though Doug, the bird is a bit blurred and unsharp, but the action pose is really quite funny.
i have the same lens, and you're right, it's not the fastest, but can produce some good results with perserverance! This is really nice though, like you say, a good sense of movement and sharp in the body and legs. I don't think it'll be long before you're churning out real beauties like th rest of them! Have a great weekend mate

Firstly excellent basics - light, exposure and sharpness. What I really like is the moment - the face sticking out of the blurred wings - awesome.

Seems to be a Gull day.. :) Well done! And as Janice says - they are great to get your feet wet.
Good job, Doug!

for a first try to catch in inflight a bird, you are successful,
and it is a bird that has a graceful flight,
i always try to shoot birds in inflight bat i don't have very succes,
the advice i give you, is to shoot in IS0400 and the shutter speed
at least 1/800s or 1/1000s (i am not an expert is just my opinion)
excellent POV of your image and the way you framed the seagull
and i love the blur of the wings that show's the motion of the image
