These were taken last December when these flock Milford Beach, Auckland like crazy.

I didn't want to crop the images as I wanted to use the full frame.

A longer lens would be ideal but I still enjoyed tracking these.

These ones were taken during one sunrise photowalk on the same beach:

Same beach but this time, somebody gave them fish so there wasn't that much BIF.

These were taken a few days ago. It was a short session because I had to go pick someone up and my 128GB SD card was full! I only had around 150 shots there so something was definitely wrong. I found out that there was a Trash folder in the card where all the photos go to everytime I delete them though a file manager, so I wasn't really deleting them when I delete them in my computer. All the deleting has to be done in-camera to prevent that Trash folder from filling up.

Anyway, here, upon closer look, it looks like the seagull on the middle-left is feasting on a dead manta!

This one breezed past just a few metres from me but the buffer became really, really slow so this was the only frame saved and he was already far away.

I had to delete some files before I took a shot of this one. I was waiting for him to fly but the buffer was really slow and I had to leave the scene and pick somebody up.

Lesson learned. I only delete in-camera after finding the problem out.

Roosters?

These were taken yesterday during a 15-minute photowalk at Kell Park in Albany, Auckland.

When I first visited this park 15 years ago, everybody was referring to it as "Chicken Park." Even the stone at the entrance has a roosted etched on it!
