RSPB Bempton, East Yorkshire coast:
I'm always impressed/amazed/frustrated by the speed of these blighters. It would be so much easier to photograph them if they only slowed down a bit and had a predictable flight path.
All photos taken with my new to me Pentax K-3iii DSLR with a 55-300 PLM lens (hence some cropping).
I'm happy with the clarity and speed of the Pentax and the lens.
Which photo do you like best?

Gotta K-3 iii now, had a K-S2 and so suffering from a relapse and buying digital camera kit.
Previous addiction has resulted in using Zeniths, Yashicamat, Chinons, Minoltas, Samsungs, Fujis, Cosina, Kodak, Lumix, Canon, Nikon and Pentax etc etc - have tried most makes in the past 40 years. Love cameras - love taking photos even more

Hi Grumpy, once i viewed large on my desktop computer my choice changed from c to b .
Number 2 basically which is some breed of gannet i assume(no expert with bird species)
It just has better eye detail than number 3 which is also a nicely framed and was my first choice when viewed on smaller screen but eye detail is dark so harder to connect as we do with a animal or bird Photograph.
Number 2 also has way more impact when viewed large as in the foreground colour and angle to the subjects trajectory.
Didn't think i would go on so much

B for me. The light has caught the coloured patch behind the head very well.
