Zürcher Lachmöwe

(Click into to view larger and on black)

Common black-headed gull in Zurich on 2014-11-10 with Sony A7 and Minolta AF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 (the non-APO version).

The small gulls are very common around the Zurich lake and Limmat river and masters in catching breadcrumps in flight.

The Minolta AF lens is actually very small (short when focussed to infinity), light, and cheap. It feels plasticy, because it is. But it allows a minimal focus distance of 1.5 m only. The little more expensive APO version is supposed to be very sharp, but for a web picture I am more than pleased with this one.
