Re: Canon 6D can do birds

I’ll certainly try, but I think it will probably be difficult. Gulls aren’t circus performers, they do what they feel like, not what I feel like. To be perfectly honest I don’t think I can, I’ve done it with aeroplanes, but they’re big and slow compared to gulls,  I usually get in one shot of a gull boring in, and it’s often blurred, so I take another one the next time it comes around, after half an hour of that I have a few keepers. But a series of gulls coming straight at you in sequence, no you’d need a  1D or 7D plus a 500mm lens with TC, so you can start shooting at a distance. I give in already!
