Wonder of wonders, three birds were more or less happy to have me get close. Not so wonderful, all three obliged on my last day at the seaside.
How to vary the output from an enjoyable stroll in balmy sea breezes? What about a technical challenge? Say, use only full frame pictures? No cropping and very little post-processing?
But I'm not that great behind a camera. The plan would be too hard for me. But, I could discover, afterwards, three pictures fitted such a challenge.
And one of them, with a bit more work, ended looking fit to put up for critique elsewhere. No prizes for guessing which one. It's not the Silver Gull (Larus novaehollandiae) below.
