Good wings

I've taken innumerable gull photos in the past, but this new camera freezes motion so much better. I could almost never freeze motion with my S2IS. That's the only thing it was missing - an automatic sports setting.

You know, it's most desirable to catch a bird with its wings in upwards flapping motion, not downwards. I read that and after I did I realized it makes perfect sense. A lot of what seems obvious is not obvious until you read it, then you look at examples of birds in flight and see it's true. Right there half your bird pics go in the trash. I think I can use this guy for something someday though. Hmmm, can he pass for a dove? Nope. Well, anywho.
