173/365 Black-headed Gull feeding

Whilst down at the coast yesterday I decided to have a short mini project on Black headed Gulls.  I learnt a lot about their feeding behaviour and how to utilise this to gain better photographs.  It was putting the autofocus system of the 5D mk3 to the test and I can honestly say it coped extremely well.  It is certainly a project that I will be continuing. Here is one of the best from the day.  Not perfect but I like the way the water is trickling down from the bird as it rises from the water.
