BIRDS: Weekly comp CHAT 15-23/07/17
« on: July 15, 2017, 08:01:00 AM »
Weekly Comp:15/07 - 23/07/17 - CHAT THREAD – BIRDS

The topic for this week is BIRDS
First thing I saw when I opened my blind was a magpie scaring the the wood pigeons off the food we put out last night. So this weeks theme is birds - of the feathered variety before someone asks. The ones that fly or even don`t if you come across an ostrich or such, the ones that crap on my head (twice in one day at Whitby on Thursday!!!!) - you know what I`m saying. Something I rarely shoot so learning for me.
No restrictions  on editing. Pictures to be taken preferably between now and Sunday 23rd July 2017, 23:59, OR  please enter something from your personal archives.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59pm Monday  24th July 2017.

Plenty of bird photographers on CC, so you should get a good number of entries!

With my poor eyesight, birds are almost impossible to catch, as they always move, before I adjust the camera. Sitting ducks are more or less the only ones, I can target and shoot.

Seagulls! I wish I'd shot a few last week in Penzance (with a 12 bore). All night they kept screaming at my hotel bedroom window. And they're almost as bad by day.

Busy week so I am in very early as I don`t think i`ll get out with a camera for birds. Shot this one a couple of days ago when on a gypsy caravan break in North Shire - a campsite with a Hobbit theme. Great fun. The animals there were so friendly and I made an immediate impression on the peacock who strutted his stuff for me.

Looks like quite a nice little trip apart from the dodgy angled train rides!
