Love the gull, clam in mouth, wng tip just off the water, great shot.

re what will he do with the prize, he will fly over a rock or hard surface and drop it from a great height to smash it. I have seen this before. WHo thought gulls were this smart?

Thanks all for the kind comments.

I like the gull shot also but I wish I would have gottten it a bit sharper. Thats the most detail I have ever had on a crow also. They're a little tough.

As I said in the first post "got bored ", these are photos that I have had just sitting and not really went through yet. The weather just isn't letting me out much so I allowed some time for PP.

All 3 are very good-looking shots. Even if the detail of the seagull is a little soft (particularly the head) it's a good capture that tales a story. And the detail in the crow is super.

I really like 'em all.

Oren, I love that gull. The wing looks like it is touching the sand. Great capture. By the way, your PPG gallery is stunning.

Very nice shots, the details and colors are really great. My favorite is the last one with the gull just skimming the water with that nut. It is very sharp and you captured the moment perfectly.

Well done Oren.

Especially the BIF shot. I've yet to manage anything better than a blur.
