Tips From a Pro: David Tipling on Beginning Bird Photography
Herring Gull Norway
"I've never been the kind of bird photographer that felt compelled to produce simply nice portraits of birds, they turn me off, and so I tend to concentrate on trying to be as "arty" as possible. Reflections are always fun to shoot and while waiting for a White-tailed Eagle to appear in Norway I noticed this reflection of a Herring Gull, made more interesting by the double image from ripples in the water."
Shot using a Nikon D2X with a 300mm f/2.8 lens at ISO 100, f/6.3 at 1/640 sec, hand-held.
