dpc the first shot is rather intriguing, maybe an "if only" shot that you'd wish to try over?  At first glance I thought it was two birds.

Recently, I've been made more aware of what appears to be a fact.  Cameras and lenses are so good that virtually everyone is getting "good" shots so it takes some other element to attract attention these days.

Not quite the shot I would have wanted. It was a 'snap' shot. I had little opportunity to frame it the way I would have desired. The gulls were flipping around here and there and I was using a Sigma 150-600 C at the long end, so finding the bird in the viewfinder was an issue. Anywhoo... :o

Yes, that's what we're confronted with and we try our best.  :)  And ... once in a while we really luck out and get that ooh ah photo.  BIF is not something I've become good at, that's for sure.

I like that - it is the sort of shot I have been trying to get but the planets have not aligned yet...

More raptors this morning:
Marsh harrier (female and male, I suppose)
