MAW's shot of the gulls head gave me the idea to revisit my gull in profile shot from earlier and see what cropping and a little vignetting would produce.

Nice sharp shot, Ed. Love that red eyeliner, even if it is a seagull. :)

Nice shot! It's very sharp. And there's catchlight in the bird's eye too which is very nice. The bokeh is interesting, very sparklely. Did you use fill flash?

Also, may I ask what camera and lens you were using?

Thanks all, no fill flash masp and the lens is a Nikkor AFS VR 70-300 f4.5-5.6 ED-IF. Catchlight was most likely produced by the sun or a reflection off some of the snow higher up behind me as I was standing on the frozen pond with the birds. Sparkle in the bokeh was from the snow/ice.
