Hats Off Time

I decided to have a go at catching some birds in flight and quite frankly I doff my cap to those photographers who nail these shots. I almost fell in the canal a few times spinning round to track the birds and not concentrating on where I was. Got a couple which weren’t too bad but something to keep trying I think.

    What we won’t do for a great shot! I’ve tried my hand at avian photography, but those little guys know exactly what I’m up to, and I get absolutely zero cooperation! So hard. These are great photographs!

      Thank you. But it’s always the same with us photographers you always want one a little better each time.

    Great pictures. I find it so hard to capture shots of birds in flight. I usually end up with a mountain of shots with only half of a very blurry bird! Well done. 🙂

    Beautiful shots! Motivating to this would be photographer. ( if I just had a decent camera)

      After the last couple of days I need to always take my big lens with me I would have had some beauties today.

    BIF are sooooo difficult…for me as well. I’ve been practicing on the slower ones…like a pelican or even the hawks as they tend to hover. Also learned that it is easier if you keep both eyes open when looking thru the viewfinder, it helps track the movement better. just thought I’d share 🙂
