I managed to get out of work early this afternoon, took a lot of shots of water birds. I saw this gull sitting by itself on a rock quite wary of me. Before it flew off I got this shot. Since it was early afternoon the light was quite harsh, but I think this shot ended up OK.

I quite like shot 1 Antz and all you birders inspired me to get out there yesterday and shoot a few frames.

I'll post a shot or 2 this weekend.
thx - Marko

Kat already said it: The first shot is very fine and wonderful clear.

The second has a nice head of hair ;-) - I am curious too, what its name is.

The name should be the Groucho Marx Gull :evil2:

I quite like shot 1 Michael
That would be Anthony ... but it's a compliment for AntZ if you mistake his work for Michael's!! I wish someone would that to me!! :rolleyes:


AntZ ... 2nd shot is a Crested Tern dude

The 1st shot is nice ... I like the detail in the rock!

Thanks everyone.:thankyou:


Woops - fixed and embarrased.:o

I've done that before too, but fixed before too many noticed. Like MA said I should take as a compliment.

2nd shot was just a snap, as I tried to get closer and more steady for a decent one, but he flew away.
