photoblog image Gull Fright

Gull Fright

I shot this with the help of the C-AF (Continuous AutoFocus) feature on my E-300 -- i saw the bird int he distance take off so i rolled my apature to f/3.5 and switched to C-AF and kept the shutter half way down and followed that bird in flight. At the right moment i pushed all the way and snap. This was the outcome.

So how long did it take you to agitate the birds? tongue AWESOME shot... kinda scary.
This is very cool! That seagull is amazingly sharp.
This is quite impressive. Well done, to capture birds while flyong is not an easy thing. This scene is really interesting.
Definately a money shot..
I can almost hear that gull squack coming from the flying bird. Great shot.
Remember that time when we were out and got chased by the swarm of angry gulls? or that other time when the whole flock flew over head and.... that one was messy.... oh.. you don't remember those, not at all? i made it up you say? really? oh.... i guess i must have been dreaming...

cool shot wink
