Haven't posted in here for a bit but going through the photos from our Florida trip I managed to score some BIF photos. Always an inspiration to see everyone's work. Here's a couple of Laughing Gulls from Dauphin Island.

A male western marsh harrier (circus aeruginosus) appearing and flying by so fast I almost couldn't react. Then luckily it made a second round.
The heavily backlit situation made it even worse. Even though I used partial metering it is the first time that I thought about +5 steps pushing the shadows ;)
I like the 2nd pic most when it is looking down twisting its head.

Herring gull (larus argentatus) in Bremerhaven. I was on a business trip and had only the 24-105L with me. Too much luggage ;)
5D4, 24-105L @105, 1/400, f/8, ISO100, I had to crop to 2700x1800
I like the motion blur of the wings :cool:

Nice photos Alan! Off course my favorite is the Peregrine (I just love Falcons and the photo is nice!). And after "pixel-peeping" :)LOL:) I thing the "worm" with the Starling is actually a caterpillar (looks like something from Sphingidae but it's really long shot)!

100% the same opinion here (y)
The light with the peregrine is just fantastic. And the rest (timing, ...) as usual in HQ.

Not only was your guess a long shot, but so was the image! The starling was 33m away with the 100-400mm, and I upsized 2x to post.
