Finally

I've often complained of my inability to get a shot of a gull in flight.  I have finally luckily got one and am satisfied.....Van Morrison satisfied.    It is not in perfect focus but that's ok.....

 

I'd love to play a Van song but he has really mean spybots out there.

Good capture Mary and I like the fact that you snapped the gull with something in its mouth smile
Mary MacADNski: Tom suggested it is a crab. I think he's right.

Excellent!
You can stop your complaining now!


I have a big collection of Van Morrison, so will select a song and listen to it when I return from gym, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Satisfied is on Common One. I will send you a great live version.
Such a good catch for you and the gull.
Mary MacADNski: LOL That's right. Tom thinks it is a crab.
The entire world will be satisfied with this great capture Mary....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I work so hard and have never had a half decent one.
Sweeeeet! you did a wonderful job Mary!
Mary MacADNski: A fluke, I tell you. I work hard to get this type of shot and never succeed. This one just happens along like that!
Well done, Mary. Fine detail.
Mary MacADNski: It's a bit blurry but it's not a blur.

Very pleasing Mary. VM used to live in Bath (maybe he still does)
Mary MacADNski: I'm a big fan.
Yes, Van the man would have been a great choice. I like the scavenging personality of this gull Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I suppose you've seen him a dozen times. I'm a big van fan. Finally got a half decent bird!
what a great timing for this one
Mary MacADNski: Just a fluke too!
Good capture, Mary - looks like it's picked up a crab!
Mary MacADNski: I think you're right!

He looks really good to me and with his beak full, really well captured, good choice of music too! smile
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Linda. I was pleased by finally getting a bird.
Not only in flight but with a beak full of food. Well caught Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Les! Finally was the right title!
You are right to be pleased.
Mary MacADNski: I really am even though it's not in perfect focus.

It looks fine to me, Mary. You've got a bonus of it flying with its lunch - looks to be a crab?
Mary MacADNski: It's not bad, eh! I'd say Tom was right with his suggestion of crab.
Very well captured as well Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I was chuffed as you say there.
You certainly nailed it this time Mary. Congratulations
Mary MacADNski: I was quite pleased. Thank you.

Oh yes, you must be lucky to have captured the gull at this moment- and the gull too has just captured some food -two lucky or happy beings!
Mary MacADNski: Lucky for me, happy for the gull.
Van lives near us, in Dalkey, just couple miles up the coast. He's a very VERY strange man...seems to be in constant disagreements and court cases with his neighbours.
Mary MacADNski: I am a huge fan of his music; always have been. I know he's not friendly and that he's super vigilant about his rights to his music. I saw him once but sat in the nosebleed section.
