This photo is another of the group of seagulls, this time one is taking off from the rocky cliff they were on. At this point I was still on auto and the camera selected a shutter speed of 1/320th second and an aperture of F9. This meant that upon moving I was unprepared. Despite this the blur on the wing adds a feeling of movement without being over the top. I would suggest that before you approach birds you set a higher shutter speed on shutter priority or set both the shutter speed and aperture on manual and as I said in my last post, set it to continuous burst shooting mode. With all of this put together you can achieve great photos.
