Ring Billed Gull
19-AUG-2006 BJ Ramsay

Ring Billed Gull

Flag Ponds SP, Calvert MD

What a day shooting: Ospreys, a Red Fox, Racoons, blue herons...
and a Ring Billed Gull steals the show!

Cropped, resized, sharpened and posted!

I was catching pictures of the ospreys as they were circling around the point
and I followed this gull just for the practice! Though it looks like I used a
flash this is natural lighting!

Here is a quick osprey shot as he was diving head first into the bay:

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
1/640s f/6.3 at 400.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Nice shot, BJ. Nice detail. I've about worn my 80-400 out this summer. A great lens.
