Meandering with camera…
Wow…what beautiful shots…. 🙂
Do you suppose that the fact that they flew over my head proves there is a god? (just kidding, of course!) 😉
Hmm…no, I don’t suppose…but if they had just walked around, milling about your knees, that might have proven it, right? 🙂
Hmmm… not so sure about that one either. Geese used to terrify me, having been attacked by one when I was maybe three or four years old. We’ll have to work on another theory. 😉
Thank you, Chillbrook and thanks for visiting!
You just brought a great big smile to my face…..thanks for sharing!
I love bringing smiles to my friends! Makes me smile in return. 😉
The pictures get better and better until you reach the last one… home run 🙂 I think having some rocks in the background gives the frame some form of anchor… I’m talking too much… have a great day 🙂
No, Bashar, you’re not talking too much. I agree about the sequence and the last one being the home run. Thing is when I’m shooting while they fly overhead, there really is no time to line up the perfect background. It was pure luck to catch them and even better luck that they flew over in the direction of the cliffs. I wasn’t even sure what I had until I downloaded the series. When I pulled up that last one, it blew my socks off. You have a great day, too!
My favourite is the last one too!
Me, too. Can’t describe how excited I was to see that one when I downloaded. Almost as thrilling as seeing the real thing fly overhead!
Love these. They would make a great print in a frame of 3.
Thanks, Moriah. They definitely have possibilities.
change of bird *G*
Great pictures. I also remember the flying ducks hanging on the wall!
Thanks, Andrew. The ducks must have been a UK thing.
Lovely shots – favorite has to be the last one with the rocks framing their ascent. My mother is on the migration path for these glorious birds Iin south west Scotland). You can walk out and see a field with every last inch covered by them as they rest.
The last was my favorite, too. Again, I can hardly believe my luck walking on the beach tonight I saw the string of them (5) flying toward me and just happened to have the longer lens on. Just snapped away as they flew right overhead. Didn’t really know what I had until I got home and downloaded. I remember being near a field years ago where there were hundreds of them…. the cacophony was simply marvelous. They were feeding and there were groups circling and landing and taking off. I stood there mesmerized for a good long while. No fancy camera back in that day.
So beautiful. Made me think of Paul Gallico.
Thanks, footsy. I had to look Paul Gallico up and I’m still not sure I get the connection?
Beautifully captured there!
Thanks, newsy… but it was pure, sheer luck to have that gaggle fly overhead. I was stoked.
Lovely photos, Gunta. The ones with the three reminded me of those iconic wall hung, ceramic flying ducks which were so popular in England in the 1950’s. My parents and most of their friends had them on the wall above the fireplace. You brought back childhood memories for me. 🙂
So happy to provide you with good memories. I wonder if it compares to the thrill I experienced catching this bunch flying overhead.
Probably not. 🙂
