Shot captured last Saturday afternoon while out birding at the Salina nature reserve.

Given the fair weather conditions and the low afternoon sunlight, I was shooting into the sun most of the time ..... quite challenging conditions too. I picked out these two gulls about to have a squabble over the salt pans and zoomed in ..... waited for the right moment, and shot a quick burst, choosing this frame as the best of the lot.

Viewing large looks better.

Action Gear -
Camera: Nikon D7500
Lens: Nikkor 200-500mm at 500mm

Have a great week ahead,
