Seagull in Flight

By mrsvee
Hi, Everyone.
Today I have become a full member of EPZ.
Thank you all who voted on my beautiful Robin, I love him and I think it will be a long time before I will do anything better.
Another bird today also from my visit to Dunham Massey.
This is my first attempt at anything moving, not the sharpest of images I know but I was well pleased with it.
I took about about 40 shots and only got a couple that were any good, this was the best one.
All comments are always very much appreciated.

Well captured, good pose ! unfortunatly the underbelly and tail feathers are just a tad overexposed.

Welcome to ep2, the large and variations options are well worth having and being able to see who voted for your shot but didnt comment is handy.
This is a nice in flight shot.

Hi Vee
Considering this was your first attempt at anything moving...I think you have captured this Seagull very well.
May I also say welcome as a full epz member....

Stunning shot, I know how hard it is to capture moving things. You have done a cracking job, really clear and sharp and the colours are spot on. Tracey

What a great in flight capture - plenty of movement and detail here - it is one of the most difficult things to capture successfully.
