Travel Theme: Birds


Every time I try to take a picture of a cute little bird something goes wrong. If the shot isn’t terribly out of focus, then the bird will move at the last second or the finished image is just too boring to post but my lack of photographic timing doesn’t stop birds from flying into my pictures each time I’m at the waterfront.  Sometimes everything lines up just right and it looks like I actually planned the shot to include them but now you know the truth.  Any photo you see here with a bird in it is the result of an unplanned coincidence…

      1. 1 out of 100 turns out. I really love the color in the background of your photo. A one in a million shot. Well done!


  1. I am a neophyte photographer. I have noticed, through my own experience and talking to real-live photographers, that there is a lot of luck involved. I think that’s one of the reasons I love it so.


  2. Nice shot NW, the bird stops it from becoming “another sunset” photo. I had to take loads to get the bird in the right position for a similar photo – put the camera on multiple shot and hopefully one will put the bird where you want it in the frame! Happy New Year for when it arrives. MM 🍀


    1. Thanks Mick, I agree the bird saves this one from being another sunset photo which explains why I’ve had it for a while but haven’t posted yet. It’s one of the only bird pictures I have though and it just happens to be in the middle of a sunset. 🙂 Happy New Year to you too!
