    The fun begins, Benoit! Great shots! Really liked #2. How close to the animals were you when you took these shots?

    These are as good as they get, Benoit. The color, sharpness and subject isolation are top notch! Is that a little catfish I see in the gull's mouth? :cool:

    Love the hsot of the gull with its lunch

    They all excellent capture.
    It's a bit odd seeing the gull with fish. I guess I'm more used to seeing them with bread in their beak :Depressed
