Seagull in Flight
Lens: DA 18-135 WR Camera: K5 Photo Location: Michigan ISO: 80 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F6.7 
Posted By: VoiceOfReason, 02-28-2014, 09:27 PM

Here's a seagull I caught in flight with my 18-135 and yes, using autofocus. It was all the way out at 135mm too! That's why that lens is normally on my K5!

You would be amazed at what the 18-135 can do.

Great work! Birds in flight (or frankly anything moving) can be really hard to catch in the right focus.

Thanks! I'm glad they fly really slow or I would have been in trouble getting it.

Wow! Even flying slow, I don't think I could have captured it! (not that I have that exact lens, mind, but I do have several in similar/overlapping lengths). Well done!
