WPC: Birds in Flight

Feathered Friends-8

Good morning from a cool but sunny spring day here in Hastings.

This week  from The Daily Post has asked us for our photos of victory.

In your photo this week, focus on the win, the victory — that moment of glory and pride you’ll remember forever. I can’t wait to cheer for you.

So I am showing some of my birds in flight. Above is a mute swan running down the water to take off.

I have slow reflexes and it wasn’t until I got my new camera and faster lenses that I can feel a sense of victory and satisfaction of getting some more interesting photos of ducks than just swimming around.  They can be good too.  But I wanted some action.

It is like being in training – training my reflexes and eyes to spot a chance

I also want to thank Cee from Cee’s Photographyceenphotography.com for some tips for the next couple of photos.

Going to the beach in Napier gives me a good chance to practice and win some great shots.
