I’ve been wanting to take pictures of birds in flight for a loooooooooong, long time.
And I’ve tried.Many times. But they’ve always failed. Without fail. 😉
So, now I’ ve got a new camera, and I thought I’d try again. I’m not too displeased with the results, although they are very far from stunning and perfect. But they are not too bad a start. I think.
But more importantly, what do you think? Honestly?
I saw this heron perched on a man-made hilltop, and thought it might make a nice picture.
The next moment it took off, and I had some trouble finding it in my view finder again, but eventually I did.
Next, I thought I’d give a try at getting some shots of the cows’ constant companions, the Cattle Egret. They feast every day on the ticks that are always around cattle.
And of course, as I got closer, they too took off.
These were the only pics worth saving and/ showing, but I’ve enjoyed trying, and we’ve got many, many birds around here… You are warned – lots of bird pictures still to come!
