A 2 or 3 step ladder would be perfect, even a small apple crate, can put stuff in it for carrying too.

You're out of the loop, Dad. You need to quit wasting time with half-naked women and that kid of yours and hang out here with the boys more often.



Or not.

btw... I"m finally getting used to calling you Mark, instead of Matt by mistake... personally, I think it would've just been easier if you changed your name.

No idea how to improve the photo, other than switching lenses and/or using a different body.

Well, it's just not very interesting. When a bird is just flying against a blue sky it's tough to make it seem super. Usually you'll try to really get close so, at least, the viewer can see lots of details. If you had one gull trying to steal from the other, then this kind of open shot can work. It also works when you can show environment, but this open sky is just kind of plain.

Getting close adds drama and interest:

Oh yeah, that lens works best when there are 1,000 birds.

Nice light, nice composition, perfect exposure, EXCEPT it's the ass end. Rodi can get away with that, but for wildlife you almost always want the other end.
