Good inflight captures Neil.
I can never get a decent shot of them ''perched'',never mind in flight !!

18 May 2011 - 1:46 PM

Two super captures of birds in flight - V1 for me, but only just!

V1 for me as well Neil, looks terrific with the blue sea as b/g.


18 May 2011 - 2:23 PM

Great shots, Neil - I wouldn't even try to get ones of birds in flight!

Well done - two great shots, something I tend to avoid. Birds in flight are so difficult to catch. I think I prefer V1 but both are good.

Neil, I've tried this and know from experience -- this is so difficult.
You did a great job here. I like them both but V1 just edges out V2 for my vote.

2 good captures. Am always trying to get the oystercatchers in flight, usually blurred mess. Moira

Mick has said what I was thinking, I think you have done really well.

18 May 2011 - 11:31 PM

Well captured - The bird stands out well from the sea with no distractions

Nicely captured - I've tried this a few times!
Cheers -- Steve

Definitely V1 for me, having tried and failed many times I know how difficult in flight shots are, well done.

Two superb inflight captures

20 May 2011 - 8:42 AM

Two nice bird image, Neil! I prefer the 2nd image, only because of its colour, and how it contrasts with the colour of the surrounding scenery! Nicely captured!

Love both equally .. so a half vote each

Two great inflight shots, Neil. Both excellent captures but its V1 , just, for me. The colour of the sea in the b/g really enhances the detail of the gull's wings. Smile Well done
Take care,

Both very nicely captured
