I went to Santa Monica Beach purposely to shoot vids using the 50 1.8 and Tamron 17-50. When I got bored of shooting the vids, I put on the 100/2.8 and tried AI Servo on the 7D for the first time, Zone Focus.

1 - When I noticed two seagulls flying close to me I started shooting. This seagull was actually carrying a bald tennis ball(*edited) and he dropped it. See next pic.

2 - Ball further away from the bird

3 - Now he's trying to get it back.

4 - The ball bounced twice. The second bounce he tried to get it.

There was another shot after the pic #4 but it was OOF. The ball almost hit the bird on the neck.
Btw, I tried to match the background color but I couldn't. I'm just using DPP.
Thanks for looking.

Probaly thought it was something he had to crack open to eat, dropping is fairly common behaviour for some birds.

I guess that answers any questions about the 7D's AF. ;)

Very nice shots. I hope he finds something to eat. :)
