I don't want to put TOO fine a point on it; but, this is easily one of the top 3, best in flight shots I've seen. Absolutely amazing framing and you nailed the focus right where it needed to be.

Hi Mark,

That is not a black headed gull, your next post is though, this is most likely a herring gull.

HTH

Thanks very much for that Sid.

Enjoy.

This is a fantastic shot, Ted! The sharpness, the lack of wing motion blur, and the clean dark background make this a very appealing shot.

An amazing shot, Vassilis! I have not idea of how you were able to get such a great close-up photo of a swift.

That's an excellent capture; the markings and detail caught are wonderful

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
