Joe: I am reading a book, A Most Remarkable Creature, which partially explain the presence or absence of birds and other animals throughout the world. All these birds we have talked about are definitely related and have a story to tell. Thanks again for your comments.

I have been out of action for nearly 4 months (due to illnesses, not COVID though!), felt good to be outside again.
I liked this shot, so thought I'd share it.

A couple of snaps of two common Silver Gulls as found all around the Australian coast.
A modest test of my a7iv's Bird eye autofocus setting, taken with the SEL20600G OSS.

Francis, do you mind sharing the original owl shot, too?

It's a nice try using a lovely subject for a photomontage, though for me personally this compositing doesn't work due to the not fitting light source (angle of light) between foreground and background
