While watching these gulls stealing the food from the ducks beaks at Swanbourne Lake I thought it was an ideal oppotunity to try and capture one taking off. It was late afternoon and the sun had dropped below the tree line causing the water to look rather dark. Quite pleased with shot hope you like it too.

I keep saying I will get a bird in flight or doing something rather than just taking a bird on a twig, great effort from you and practise will make perfectWink
