my favorite birds from this week...
5 Attachment(s)
ive put together a series of my favourite duck or swan shots from yesterdays trip to Kersney Abbey in Dover. out of almost 800 shots i chose 5 lol. (yes i have been busy) thats not to say that i only had 5 worth showing, i just dont want to bore you more than necesary ;) swans are so hard to photograph well. a few of you here are what i call the experts at birds, i aim to join you some day but for now i offer these.

i hope you enjoy the series


in preview i noticed that the last shot is done no justice at this size. i have it currently set as my background screen on a 24 inch monitor. it looks much better :(

Thank you Alex and Saly for your very kind comments. I feel like my photography is moving forward at last, and this visit brought some of my best pictures yet. with such good friends here its hard not to feel encouraged.

Many thanks

Amazing shots FITCIP. #1, 3 & 4 are my favorite.
Kersney Abbey in Dover is very beautiful place.

Very nice. I like #2. I always have a soft spot for those guys for some reason.

Thank you NileLily, there as many different types of water bird there. These are just a few. Im glad you liked them :)

Thanks Steve, not quite sure what type of duck that is but my son called it Kane. I think he watches too much wwe lol
Mating season and there will be plenty of young there soon. Hope to capture some ducklings. And maybe even a swan carrying its young. That would be a good shot to get.

Thank for the comments
