[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Ring-billed Gull in flight. It is somewhat tough to focus in-flight birds using the Tamron 70-300mm Di LD lens. The lens tends to hunt a lot, but I think the D100 compensated for keeping focus on the subject using the Continuous Tracking focus mode. I got a lot of out-of-photos but a few are in good focus.

Hello Nikhil,
Your right about the difficulity of trying to get in-flight birds in focus, but you nailed this shot!! Great facial detail with natural coloration. Other then the white breast and tail feathers being a little OE you managed quite well on this shot. TFS.
