When I first set out to work on capturing birds in flight -- I purposely chose a common, and slow bird -- a Ring-billed Gull. This was supposed to be a exercise in learning the features of a new lens -- but much to my surprise, Gull feathers is what I learned about. Even a common bird can be a discovery -- if you look at it the right way.
