51st place (joint)
I bought a 7D recently to help with photographs of birds in flight and indoor tennis. This photograph of a Black Headed Gull at the Cotswold Water Park was taken on my first outing with the 7D and 400 mm 5.6 lens. I was very pleased and relieved to see it come out so well, with a sharp eye and feather detail. I now can't wait to get out again to another birding location.
