FOR THE BIRDS

This blog is “for the birds”. During this past week I seemed to noticed a lot of birds and I’ve been working on my skills to capture some of them. You have to understand that birds have a built in sense as to when you are putting the camera to your eye and zooming in preparing to take their picture. Just as you are squeezing the button they take flight. I have a rather large collection of blurred birds taking flight and blank sky with no visible birds.

Below are a collection of birds I did manage to capture this week during my daily walks. I’m not sure what they all are but will make some guesses. If you want a bigger look at these birds you can click on the image to make it larger.

Not sure what these are but I liked the silhouettes, great flappers.

So I guess I’m gaining on it. I think I’ll keep working at this and over time I’m sure I’ll have even more and better bird shots.

Thanks for flying with me and have a great weekend.

  1. I am sure birds can see exactly what we are up to. Wonder if the movement of the camera to our eye makes them think instinctively of guns or something that may cause their destruction.
