For the most part I've had sub par success capturing sharp pictures of birds in flight. So on the occasions that I venture out into the city to do some shooting, I often take the opportunity to hang out at the back of the ferry and practice photographing seagulls as they dive and climb and float back and forth on the jet stream the ferry creates. After I record 10 or 20 shots I look at them to see if my percentage of sharp shots is improving, then I delete them right afterwards, as their aesthetic value is minimal. But today this early morning shot wasn't totally deserving of the trash bin.
