I happened to be out looking for people shots and came across seagulls dropping down to the water grabbing at small fish. I set up with a monopod, Canon EOS 10D, and 70-200 f/2.8 Sigma EX lens. I waited until a bird approached and then tracked it until it dropped to the water. Trial and error finally got me somewhat attuned to the best time to take a shot. What I captured was a really nice detail shot of a seagull. I was especially pleased with the highlights and play of the water in the image.

Especially trying to catch a shot of my dog running. It sure isn't easy. I like your seagull, where did you take it?
hope to see more of you soon
