    Hi, excellent pictures, I really like the look of gulls. Even though they are considered pests, they are so great to photograph.

    What a great place to be for a twitcher- the Falklands! Would love to go there one day 🙂

    I love your bird pictures. Tried to photograph a regular ole red Cardinal in the yard the other day; but my camera isn't fast enough. I know you must have tricks to get the great pics you do.
