Ring Bills





I don't often shoot seagulls. I guess they're just so common here on the coast that I don't notice them much. I was watching them today and marveled at the grace of their flight so I decided a few photos might be in order. These are ring billed gulls and are probably the most common type on the gulf coast.

Yes, the birds are difficult to catch in flight. I practise as often as possible

Wow John fantastic job of catching them!! And here I thought all gulls were laughing gulls, lol...just kidding!! But these are excellant shots...amazed at how well you caught them and yes I imagine practice makes perfect! Do you pan when you shoot or set up and wait?
