Flight

Seagulls get a bad rap.  I was thinking too that I didn't appreciate my D80 as much as I should.  True, it's not nearly as fast as my D300 but darn if that little camera can't take some great pictures.

At the beach, I took my D80 with a 50-150 telephoto lens and the only thing far enough away to shoot were seagulls.  Here is how they look in flight, through my camera and long lens.

And a rest!

The gift of flight is something to behold.  Samson wishes for it everyday when chasing squirrels up trees.  Cheers from east of the equator!

What about that eagle, lol?

I know, huh. S/he hasn't been back probably b/c I have both cameras ready with telephoto lenses.

Oh my gosh that eagle was AMAZING. Sigh.
