This is one from our New Zealand holiday last month, have worked through about half the 3240 pictures and found a few good misses.
Arctic Skua getting too close to our boat and I couldn't move round quick enough, our skipper was holding his arm straight up with a fish fillet in it, the skua got it first pass.

Almost a great shot Tony! You have my sympathy going through 3240 photos - I've been doing something very similar for the last 2 or 3 days!

LOL Alan, you're brave to even venture out in it ! blowing strongly here at the moment so I sent Mike outside to put the birds feeders out ! Wilma waggie and a flock of tiny LTT's managed to wing their way in along with the regular garden birds.

In reply to see gull:
This male goldeneye was sliding gracefully under the water:
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
I love this picture. Never seen a headless water rail before.
In reply to ChrisCalow:
One of many from yesterday. A bit of camera shake, a lot of motion blur and the animal decided to check out an interesting hole. Conditions were a little challenging but even so, I would have struggled to get this wronger :)
