it's great to see a post from you again. I think I've only seen one of your photos posted since I've been a member!! (The Wiskered Tern).
Excellent in-flight shot.
Superb sharpness and detail.
Great DOF and BG.
Very well done,

it's great to see you again, my friend.
I hope you are doing well. I'm ok except my hands but I can still shooting without any big problems. Yes, I'm back to Canon.
About the picture;
I think it's a great inflight shot even it's not a duck.;-)
I know it's not easy to do inflights with a 500mm, a 300mm is more handy.
Fine details, good POV and nice colours. And of course a great note as usual.
Very well done.
I wish you step in a bit more often.

This is beautiful with perfect POV, composition, exposure and superb colors. I haven't seen Grey-headed gulls often in my life. Thanks for sharing this excellent and interesting post.
This is the second time I post this comment, for a reason it wasn't registered, so I'll put points and then it might appears :) I think that there is a bug in the system…

This picture is aesthetic a lot.

this wonderfully captures the dynamic of flight, inspite of the close crop, which usually tends to make this difficult. The composition on the diagonal, the pose and direction of flight and the slightly striped BG under and beside of the bird all emphasize the uplift. Excellent post!

Great to see you here again,and with such a fine post.
Quite remarkable sharpness and detail here,not to mention the perfect exposure and light.
This gull surely wanted you toi get the best shot possible-and you did.
Absolutely stunning work!
I'm doing great by the way.
I tried out a Canon S3IS for a bit,but found that I preferred the Lumix,so I'm now using an FZ8 which I really like.
Hope things are good with you and hope we see more of your work soon.

Lanklaas iets van jou gesien so welkom met hierdie imponerende foto. Great to see something new from you and to know that you have not forgotten TrekNature or the friends you have made here.
The vertical composition and the tightish crop are great and it really captured the essence of the magnificence and beauty of this gull in flight. You've isolated your subject brilliantly from the BG and surroundings with the very appropriate aperture selection. The shutter speed ensured amazing details on the bird and it guaranteed that it was perfectly frozen in mid-air. Apart from a small area of OE on the bird's body the exposure was spot-on and clearly shows crystal sharp details on the plumage and reveals the remarkable features throughout.
Very well done and TFS.

Excellent in flight composition.Very sharp details and excellent colors.That BG blur and color is just lovely
It's always nice to view your posting as they are perfectly executed with precision. The shallow DOF works great with this gull. Nice to see you posting. I saw some of your other stuff on Flicker and it's very cherry! :)

Die detail hierop is fantasties, die agtergrond is geblur maar tog nie heeltemal nie, baie mooi. Die lig was perfek gewees. Die foto werk. Ek sou ‘n millimeter meer spasie bo gegee het, maar ek neem aan jy het nie gecrop nie, jy het dit seker aan jou prime lens te danke? Nogtans steur dit nie, en sou ek se hierdie is 'n ongelooflike foto, salonmateriaal.
Dit gaan voor die wind met my dankie. Ek hoop dit gaan goed met jou ook. As ek na die afloop van die Salonne na die uitslae kyk, is jou naam elke keer daar, so ek weet dit gaan goed met jou wat dit aanbetref. Laat weet asb. as jy weer Bonaero Park toe gaan en as jy geselskap soek, ek sal graag wil sien hoe jy die meeue afneem. Ek het hierdie einste spesie by St. Lucia afgeneem, maar myne het nie so mooi uitgekom nie.
