I had an extraordinary weekend shooting this last week; some of my real gems from that trip below:

1.

2. There is a new open air composting facility nearby that has attracted a huge number of, both Gulls and Bald Eagles...this one chasing one of the gulls:

3. Simply one of my favorites so far

4. Some incredible patterning on this one

5. This one, female I think, happened to be calm enough that I practically stepped on her feeding in the weeds a couple of minutes before this shot. Once finished, flew out to grab something else and returned to this tree while I stood there. This is uncropped at 400mm :eek:

Good for you! You have some very nice shots there. My favorite, I think, is the in-flight shot with the gulls; it's most unusual.

Thank you; yeah, I was rather pleased with having caught the flock in the b/g that way
