Nicely captured two shot series of this gull grooming havelock! You'd think he'd want to land, and then take care of his grooming.:-)

So very well done, Mike! Not the easiest of subjects to nail in flight but the colors are right on and focus is sharp as a tack.

Many, many thanks, Steve. I really do appreciate the uplifting compliment.

That’s a great picture Mike! As I’m discovering it is so difficult to get good pictures of small birds in flight! Excellent!

Thank you Mark. It certainly is difficult to get small birds in flight...at least for me it is. I shoot a lot of shots to get a keeper. But the challenge is definitely fun.

paul katinas wrote in post #19312561 (external link)
Fantastic capture Mike. Happy trails.

Thank you very much, Paul.

Nice shot, Mike! I noticed the M6 II you used for it, did you buy the separate EVF for it? I haven't used my M6 II much, but I just ordered a EF-M macro lens and a tiny flash for it. I will try to use this light weight setup for some macro bug shots.
