I was just going for some seagull shots. I love trying to get interesting flight shots. Neither my husband nor I saw the feather actually come off. I just noticed it when I was chimping in the car afterwards!

Thanks for all the wonderful votes and comments!

You capture birds beautifully, there is more going on with your shots then technical ability.

What a moment! Beautiful light, color and clarity. And the feather - well, what can I say? Top five. Voted earlier.

Ha lovely moment and capture of the flying feather. Great upward beat of the wings and head on POV. A slightly higher shutter speed 1/2000th? would have made this top notch imo.
