I don`t have any great birding lenses but found this little guy down by the river this morning, foraging for food.

Robin 2.


I also spotted this other interesting visitor, only ever spotted one once before around three years ago and my Mrs. didn`t believe me, this is an inner city waterway, polluted in the past by years of heavy industry, it`s being reclaimed by the original inhabitants now.....not exactly going to rival Gustavs shots!

OK, my first bird effort. I know, it's only a black-headed seagull, not the most interesting. Please be gentle as it's my first effort. I'm wondering if maybe I should have stopped the lens down a bit further to get bigger DOF as I'm not sure if the bird is totally sharp. I guess I could have slowed the shutter down a bit if necessary. AF was set to wide I think.

Marcin.. Really nice series. I like the last one best for the pose.

Braism... Seagulls are always fun to shoot! I have a whole gallery of them. Common yes, but they are great candidates for catching "THE" shot.
