Many congratulations on this superlative shot. Y*. (I recently tried to get a photo of gulls gliding across a clear-blue sky. Camera set to 'continuous' mode, reeled off dozens of shots. Not one of them was remotely usable. So, believe me, methinks I appreciate how difficult it is to get a wonderful shot like yours!).

Best wishes, Brian.

Hi Brian! Thanks so much for the Y*! Very kind! As to bird in flight shots, there is so much luck, timing, lighting involved that we all miss more shots than we care to admit. It really is tough, but so rewarding when it works. The best piece of advice I can give you it, crank up the shutter speed. I never shoot lower than 1/1000 if I can help it. Good luck and best wishes, pear

Many thanks for the tip, Pear. Makes good sense. I had mine set at only 250. Chief problem was anticipation. By the time I had the camera levelled and focused the gull was already past!

Best wishes, Brian.
