During a brief rest period while walking in the park today I took the opportunity to test out my skills at capturing gulls in flight again. So finding a suitable spot close to the water with a reasonable amount of open sky above me I waited for some action after tossing some tit bits into the water.
Instead of using the camera's 'shooting mode' I switched over to Shutter Priority and set it at 1/1600 on F9, ISO400 and A1 Servo AF with Evaluative Metering .... so here are a few of the results.
With undercarriage down and full flaps working to slow it down it prepares to think about the final stage.
If you are wondering why it hasn't got a black head ... this is because it is in non-breeding plumage .... just a dark patch behind the eyes and the cap colour will actually be brown in due time. FAB
