What? Birds? No Landscapes?
I was amused this morning to find that one of my favourite bloggers, who I now look upon as a friend, Katie at Katie’s Camera Blog, and I had been thinking about the same subject for our next post and the same blogger who had inspired us with his work!
When I first came across ‘Texas Tweeties’ by wildlife and bird photographer Bob Zeller‘, I didn’t know what to expect as I clicked the link, and when the page came up on screen my first thought was, “It’s only photographs of birds! I’m not really interested in these!” Apart from the superb photography, something caught me and made me look closer and I actually read the narrative with the photographs! Bob’s photographs are brilliant, his narrative and humour are infectious, and he knows how to make his subject interesting in an entertaining way. He is a great blogger (No – it’s not a swear word, Bob)! I have only ever taken a few photographs of birds – a couple of swans, and a very large heron at a very great distance as part of my usual landscape work! So, for a ‘one post only change’, and this is a personal thanks to Bob for inspiring me to take an interest in our feathered friends, here are my very few ‘amateur’ attempts at shooting birds:
I hope you like the photographs! Thanks for visiting! Come again … and don’t be too hard on me with the critique my friend!
