[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a sunny today and unseasonably warm so I went to the lake and took more photos. I captured this pair of Ring-billed Gulls over the lake. For more information about the Ring-billed Gull, see my previous posts.

Shutter Speed = 1/800s
Aperture = 8.0
I was using ISO of 400. The focal length was 125mm.

Hi, welcome back Ken. This is a very sharp shot of these gulls. Your detail is very impressive. Looks almost like they're posing up there for you. The lower gull is very nicely positioned creating almost a parenthesis type frame for the upper one.

Thanks, John

Hi Ken,

A very well picture with the seagulls as subject, splendid pose of this two seagulls, the sharpness and clarity are superb!


Vraiment figée ces mouettes. On dirait qu'elles sont posées dans l'air.
Bonne journée.

Hi Ken,
Very good action shot!
Excellent POV to catch this couple in flight, and on this different poses.
It seems like a final approach in the nearbys of an airport.
You took advantage of the blue sky to enhance this picture.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,
