the fine DOF shows Kitti well

It looks quite a small bird compared with some gulls Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is one of the smaller gulls, that's true, Brian.
The bit of fluff in the feathers is well caught.
Tom Wilson: Entirely by chance, Mary smile
I love the focus and clarity of the gull against the muted busy background. the coloring is precise. I want to reach out and pet him
Tom Wilson: And it was my little Panaxonic TZ - not the X-E2s!

Tom Wilson: It was a bit breezy on the cliffs smile
