More Bird Photography

I like bird photography, but without a fast telephoto lens, there's not much opportunity for it. So most of the bird photography I've done is restricted to more urban birds; primarily seagulls and pigeons.

As I've said before, even with just a little bread, seagulls become very easy subjects to photograph at 55 mm.

click to enlarge, or see it on Flickr
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/1250
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 55 mm

I found that if you spend enough time with burst mode and servo AF, you'll get the seagulls in a good pose in at least one photo. I didn't even have to crop this one. I'm very happy with how this one turned out.


  1. I like the depth and range of colors on its wings. Great job!

  2. Oh, he is gorgeous! Perfect symmetry in his pose and wonderful detail and texture. Very nice capture!

  3. Wowww... I'm amazed...!!!
    This is very great photograph. Nice one! I mean it...

  4. Very clear. A great photograph.
