Thanks Fern. Shots at 200mm between 1/1000 sec F6.3 & 1/2000 sec F4. I wanted to freeze the movement of the birds, knowing the shallow DOF would mean that many would be out of focus. However that gave the 3D to the images.
It was great fun as the birds rose up into the sky and circled and then landed up the beach aways, and the process repeated

There is something very airy about these (not certain if that is a pun, I still sometimes do not “get” English) and the lovely patterns and textures, lights and shadows, crispness and bokeh. Dam.
