    That gull in Photo 2 is ever so clearly POSING for your photo - wow! (Or getting ready for attack!?!?!? :shock: ) Wow. Cool. Birds in flight ... in a SHARP photo ... that is still on my do-this-once-in-life-before-you-die-list! ;)

    Thanks!

    True indeed!

    But I thought the new one represents myself much better ;)

    LaFoto ... just take a 15 years old film camera, get attacked and shoot ;)

    "get attacked and shoot" ... wow, yeah, that sounds like a good ending to ones life then :D.

    And well, my choice is between a 8 year old camera that uses film and one that must be about 40 or so ... maybe 35, don't know -- and the two newer ones do digital photography. Plus I would need to "organise myself" a gull... But I shall see what I can do! Thanks for the advice :biggrin: !!!

    From my experience gulls are attracted by chips with salt and vinegar .. at least those at Dawlish ;)
