To get good photos of any bird, I follow just one bird with my camera along it’s flight path. I have yet to get the technical detail right, but to focus on the bird itself, you need to follow it with the camera.
I am just a point and shoot photographer but when I get the chance I will learn how to adjust exposure, shutter speed and other things.
This is on the Juvenille Blackbacked Gull which is a larger seagull than a common one, twice its size and he is under 2 years old
All these taken at the Auckland Airport viewing place
Photos were taken yesterday on Good Friday
