It started as a 366 – now a regular Photoblog- just for the love of taking photos and sharing them.
Wow! Dramatic capture!
Thanks Scilla, I was pleased with this one because the light was very poor so it was difficult..
Whoosh is right Karen !
Well done on keeping the eye sharp.
thanks M&M it was very difficult in the poor light..
Dramatic was the word that came into my mind as well, you have captured the movement well
Thanks Caroline.. showing the movement was the aim.
There are a pair of these beauties flying the skies around my Oxfordshire bolt-hole….I’ve shot them must be 5 or 6 times and got nothing….
But I’m not bitter .
😉 or twisted I hope Stuart!
I can even see the rain………not an easy shot…….great photo, Helen.
It was absolutely pouring down and sleeting too John so definitely not easy!
Only one word – AWESOME!!!!!!
Thank you Viveka.. I’ll take that word 😀
wow! great shot!
Beautifully caught, Helen – is that at Gigrin Farm where these birds are fed? Wonderful shot! Adrian
Sorry >>> hadn’t meant to give away trade secrets!!! Take these 2 comments off you’re blog if you like – that’s fine with me! Remember I was a long time birder … over 30 years .. and vast amounts of it is still there!
I didn’t know you were a long time birder Adrian.. and of course I don’t mind 😀 It was a rough day, sleet, very heavy rain and freezing cold.. but worth it.. there will be more in due course 🙂
Yes, birding roughly 1967-2002 >>> google “A Bird Atlas of Kenya” and that’s me; and partly the reason I led safaris. The atlas was the pinnacle of that career – I did some specific birding some time after my return to the UK, but felt I’d done all I wanted to by 2002 >>> was at a bit of a loose end, and then friends suggested that I do more photography.
Just realised I hadn’t replied to this. I googled A Bird Atlas of Kenya and was hugely impressed. a really major piece of work !! well done.
Thank you, Helen! And it still means a lot now – I look at it on my bookshelf and think “I did that!” – it took 9 years or so. Adrian
That’s some dedication.. wonderful achievement.
