How the hell did you catch these with a super wide angle AND SO FRIGGING CLOSE? Even at 20mm, that's really damn awesome.

Nice work!

Nice work, Rense.
Lovely images that reminded me of Hitchcock's "The Birds".

Was this off the back of a fishing boat, or off a fishing Pier? Those birds will let you get really close, they have no fear. They'd pluck a sandwich out of your fingers. Excellent shots, such amazing perspective.

Wouw! Really very cool! I know how those birds can get real close when their bellies are empty enough though.

Thanks a lot! Well: at the deck of the ferry, and a school class feeding the birds with old bread...

Nope, not that I know. But I will have it checked...

Real good action here. #2 with the wings at their forward stroke is rarely seen. I like them all.
