Spot the Bird

Spot the Bird

As I was editing my photos from our visit to Ferne Animal Sanctuary on Friday, I very nearly discarded this one – until I saw the capture of the beautiful bird in flight. It is so well camouflaged against the trees that I considered myself very lucky to get the photo!

For lots more photographs from our trip please see my previous post.

    What a great capture, I know what you mean I discard so many shots, I am glad you took a closer look at this as the focus is not always is the obvious place is it, I love how it has frozen the bird x

    What a shot! I love the accidental ones, especially when they turn out as good as this (which is rare for me). It’s wings look stunning. #MySundayPhoto

    WOW what a beautiful photo, great capture as he’s about to spread his wings to fly off… or land i suppose.

    Wow, that’s brilliant! It’s amazing that you’ve caught it in focus, considering you didn’t even know you’d taken it!

    Hi Victoria, it’s a lovely photo and looks as if the bird posed, just long enough for you to get the picture.

    So many times I’ve almost discarded pictures only to look again and think “no” I can make that work!”. Glad you didn’t delete this one. It’s a brilliant shot. #MySundayPhoto

    What an amazing clear capture, Look at those wings, simply stunning.

    It would have been a shame to have binned this – it’s a great motion capture of a particularly graceful moment.

    • March 29, 2016 / 11:17 am

      I totally agree Tim. Thank goodness I didn’t πŸ™‚ Thank you.
