A Couple of Gulls

Discussion in 'Birds' started by OldGuy, Aug 5, 2009.

  1. I caught these guys on the South Haven, MI shore of Lake Michigan. They of course have no fear at all and came within three feet of the lens.:biggrin:

  2. Nice. These are ring-bill gulls. You did a good job on the whites, not always easy.
     
  3. #3 is pretty funny. Nice set. This was taken with your 70-200?
     
  4. Thanks for your comments, I appreciate them.:smile:

    All were shot with the 70-200 AFSVR 2.8
    1/1250 @ f6.3, 200mm, #4 was 1/2000.
    Exposure bias @ +3
    ISO @ 250
    Auto WB

    #2 & #3 were right up to the close focus limit on my lens. In fact, I had to slowly move back a few inches to acquire focus.

    Regards,
