When my wife purchased my camera for me as a gift she also arranged a photography session with a photographer for a couple hours. I did this today with Ted Karlsalr from Omnilargess. It was certainly a great learning experience.
The weather wasn't great, rainy and overcast. We didn't spend a ton of time taking photos, more just going over the process of optimizing exposure, etc. However, was happy with a few:

What a good wife! She gives you a great present and she gives you someone to help you learn. You are definitely on the right track, I have always been told wildlife photography has a steep learning curve, but if you apply yourself you will get better. You are developing your bird in flight shooting that is the technique I find the hardest and you got good images on a cloudy day. Keep at it!
Thanks guys. Also got this one that I can't decide if I really like or if I don't like it. A pale bird against a pale sky kind of has a ghostly appearance but is also somewhat bland because of that. It would be great to see a bit more contrast between where the gull's head ends and the sky starts. Is there a way to make this happen? Or is this simply inevitable when photographing a white bird against a white sky?
