Blurry Flying Gray Heron Photo


Here is yet another photo that I shot during my time in Reinfeld.

Anyway, the subject is still recognizable, which is why I like the photo anyhow. Continue reading Blurry Flying Gray Heron Photo

I find it still very difficult to take photos of flying birds, my results are not always good, but I will get more experience over time I think. I had the camera in program mode when the swan … Continue reading Swan Landing
