This picture carries on with the flying things theme.
Taken well over a year ago, at the end of a dull October day, with my little Minolta Dimage this seagull was among a group that were desperate to get the berries growing on a Holly tree. It was quite amusing to watch them trying to land on the tree, which they couldn't manage because of their webbed feet. But, because of their flying skills they were still able to strip off most of the berries while I was watching.
I stood beneath the tree to get this shot.
I know the picture is very 'noisy', I used a noise reduction programme but it wasn't a good result and unfortunately I no longer have the original - hard drive died, and the new computer won't read the backup CDs.
Anyhow, at the time I was very pleased with the way it had turned out, and it's something I'd like to capture with my Olympus. I'll just have to keep looking, and waiting, for the right moment - again.
