Birds – Ailsa’s WTT

This week I’m so mixed up with my times and switched off to reality that I missed Ailsa’s challenge by a day. Oh well, nothing doing but catching up. I can’t let this one go by as just last Monday I was blessed by catching a seagull at its take off manoeuvre. I enjoy walking directly at these rather confident city dwellers as there’s always the chance of getting a good photo off their lift off…

Cheeky Dublin gull...

I can’t only give you one Dublin bird… a few weeks’ back I visited Bray so here’s a few more for you. Strictly speaking Bray is no longer in Dublin but would the birds actually know that?

Bray birds... spot the landing blur...

Earlier this year I captured a heron taking off along the Royal Canal… in Meath, mind you. Again I don’t think the heron has the foggiest idea he’s no longer in Dublin… well, maybe he does know and has escaped the city life for a quieter country existence.

OK… while I was searching for the heron photos I passed by quite a few other bird photos taken during the year… so, why not a wee gallery? I’m sure you won’t mind…

    What lens did you use for these? I`ve no bird pics either but love watching them. Especially like the blue tit on the pine tree, so cute. Oh, and the swallow on the wing.

      I’d say most were taken with the 300 mm macro lens. The lens has it’s limitations so most often I don’t push it to the max. Part of the fun… 😉
