Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Birds

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Birds – if there is one thing that I truly suck at is bird photography! Seriously, if they are standing or sitting still I have half a chance, but once they take flight…useless. Not for lack of trying, I have been to various bird shows and wildlife experiences, I have tried with a few different cameras, got lucky a couple of times, but usually end up with air or blur! That is OK, I am very good at landscapes and even Astro, I am excellent at Still Life and Portraits…we cannot all excel at everything, can we?

To be honest I am happy to snap a few pictures and then just watch them. Nothing quite as wonderous as watching a bird in flight, the freedom and sense of joy, especially in Spring and early Summer, when they get an updraft of warm air – you can frequently see the birds playing and truly enjoying themselves.
