I used my zoom with a high ISO,Nice pics, I like number 4. How did you get so close to the duck? Where you using a long tele-photo?
Actually he had an injured wing, I rescue birds in the summer but everytime I go out to take photos I seem to find injured birds LOL, first the pigeon now this seagull, I called the wild life centre and they took him and the pigeon in... there in good hands now and will be released once there better. So if anything I desurved some preening from that seagull not a nip. :greenpbl: I'm pretty sure the pigeon had new castles disease (humans can't catch it) as he was fliping seeds all over the place lol.You tried to hold the seagull? I don't think nature appreciates that. (honestly you probably deserved the nip in the face haha)
