Ring-Billed Gull (Three Photographs)

The last time I posted photos of one of these birds I called it a seagull and was rightfully corrected. Names of birds and insects are interesting in and of themselves, never mind the taxonomical questions. Common names often confound the problem; the same animal on one continent has a different common name on another. Moreover there are generic names like Gulls and Seagulls that are easily confused. For these shots I used my 200-500mm lens, and I am learning that it is a little better, especially with birds in flight closer, than farther away. I hear Canon lens are the reverse, better with far away subjects than closer ones. By the way, the bird turned just after the last shot, but I was very happy to get a bird in flight face on.

  3. Very nice face on shots. Depth of field looks very good too given the focal length of the lens.
