On Spanish Wings. #MySundayPhoto

This week’s photos are on Spanish wings. As you may have noticed by now, I love a good nature photography shoot and, in particular, birds! I love the fact that they don’t pose for you – generally speaking! – and that you tend to get so much movement in what you capture. These are just a few that I took when we were in Alicante last week.

    These are absolutely stunning, Vicky. I especially like the first one and the first duck one, but that said they are all so good it was hard to choose. A lovely addition to #AnimalTales

    Wow Victoria, these are stunning! I’d love to capture more nature photography but my kids either scare the poor creatures away or I’m just too slow with my camera. #MySundayPhoto

    Lovely nature shots, the first was is excellent what a great snap X #mysundayphoto

    Love your shot of the peacock and the ducks. Especially the second one where they are all looking to the left πŸ™‚

    Looks like many of them posed for you, but the first shot of flight is awesome.

  13. July 31, 2016 / 1:34 pm

    Oh wow, fabulous shots. I LOVE the background of the first one, simply stunning. #MySundayPhoto

    I love that old tree the swan is under Victoria.

    Beautiful captures.

  15. July 31, 2016 / 12:07 pm

    Oh wow Victoria, these are stunning πŸ™‚ Love how you managed to capture such great bird pictures, mine always turn out blurred ..

    Hi Victoria, I much prefer photographing nature than people. You’ve done yourself proud with these bird shots, all of them are brilliant. My favourite though is of the swan and duck under the tree, it’s a very atmospheric photo.

      Thank you so much Debbie. I do like photographing people too – but prefer unstaged, candid pictures. xx

    Mid-flight shots of birds are so difficult. Was trying it myself this week and just couldn’t get it to work at all! Great shots. Love your photogrpahy Victoria. #MySundayPhoto

      Thank you so much John – I really do appreciate your words of support. They aren’t easy but I guess it just takes patience, timing and lots of luck!

    Stunning stunning photos, my personal favourite is the first one

    Thank you for linking up

    It’s amazing how you manage to capture the birds in flight. I love the yellow in the background of the duck photos πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much Sarah. I love the golden hour for this reason – but I haven’t been able to get any good shots of it until now πŸ™‚

      It is a peacock. They had two at the hotel where we were staying. I know, his crown of feathers is fab!

    Stunning photos Victoria, they are all beautiful x

  22. July 31, 2016 / 6:11 am

    Stunning pics – I am in awe of how well you captured the bird mid flight and that pea fowl looks like it could be a painting!

  23. July 31, 2016 / 4:54 am

    Love this grouping of photos, especially that gnarly tree and swan!

  24. July 31, 2016 / 1:05 am

    This is a lorient collection of nature shots, and I think they’re always so much harder as you say because you can’t ask them to recreate or just stop! Love the three ducks in a row – now they look like they were waiting to be snapped!!

  25. July 31, 2016 / 12:57 am

    Beautiful photos.

    I’ve tried some nature photography but my sidekick “Little Miss OMG” scares them away before I get a chance to take the picture.

      Thank you Tas. Yep, you are right – the duck photos and the swan were taken during golden hour (something I explained to Ross at the time πŸ™‚ )

    What a brilliant collection of nature photographs Victoria,
    I love birds and nature in general. Those three ducks win it for me, but all the photos are stunning.

  27. July 31, 2016 / 12:05 am

    they are all stunning but the 3 ducks are my favourite, they remind me of ours, full of cheek and character

    • July 31, 2016 / 9:58 am

      Thank you so much Fiona πŸ™‚ I love ducks for that very reason! x
