I’m totally exhausted after a tough week at work. Most days I carry the camera but this week allowed me few opportunities to shoot and this si about all I have to show for my efforts.

I had to resort to shooting Seagulls yesterday

At least today I was able to chase a Hawk around a little but I’m not really happy with the images. At least it kept me occupied on the way home.

Ya, Just try and stop to shoot one, he will be gone before you can turn the camera on. They have been driving me nuts and I see at least a dozen a day on my travels. Every time I stop they are gone like a rocket. Still, it will not keep me from trying and one day I will get the shot I’m looking for and all the other frustrating times will be worth it.

Well, for some, when "all they can resort to is shooting seagulls", their photos still come out brilliantly, pin-sharp, extremely close-up and good. And this gull was "made-up" in its finest, I should think, hm? Wow. And there I am, trying to get a decent pic of the sparrows in our garden, and all I ever get are snapshots... :confused:

And the hawk ... well.
I know the story.
You'd have to go into hiding and hold out there for hours I think (you do that at times, don't you?), else... no chance.
