Glaucous-winged Gull (adult) | Goéland à ailes grises | Larus glaucescens: Taking shots of flying birds is always a challenge, even when they are gliding in strong winds next to a boat. I only got a few shots that I liked, two of which are featured here (and they are not perfect!).
These photos were taken from the Vancouver (Tsawwassen) — Victoria (Swartz Bay) ferry on July 3, 2015, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 400, 170mm, f/6.3, 1/1600). Not baited, called in or set up.
