The Herring Gulls hitching a lift on the breeze created by the boat over to Skoma, I though this would be good practice for catching birds in flight that I could use on the Puffins ....... wrongTongue

Seagulls are smart, graceful and well designed. We only discount them because of their big numbers and winning ways. Make a throwing motion on a wharf or beach and it is the seagull who instantly gets it and investigates. Way smarter than average. TG

Very competent in-flight capture Susan. Well-exposed detail, and I do like the shape in v1.

A stunning pair of inflight wildlife photographs, which for me tick all the right boxes.

Lovely images of a great bird to practise bird photography

Lovely shots, I tend to discard seagulls living on the coast as the tend to pinch your fish and chips but they are still a graceful bird.
