Sweet Shot Tuesday 11-22-11


Sweet Shot Day

I decided to use this picture for "Sweet Shot Tuesday" as well as "World Bird Wednesday". I snapped this one at our local Coffee Shop. This is a Goldfinch in flight. I am sure loving my camera, I especially love getting these birds in flight shots. I wish I could find some larger birds, I would especially love a hawk or an owl. Wish I know where to find one. These little guys are hard to get! Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by!

Tracey, I love seeing your in flight photos of the birds they are so cool. Now that the weather is getting colder it should be easier to find a hawk they are usually perched on fence post waiting for a mouse or some other unsuspecting rodent to venture out in the cold. At least this what the birds of prey do in the south when it gets really cold here.

Great capture, it is always fun to get a sharp image of a bird in flight.
Seek out open fields and wetlands and you will find your hawks, egrets and herons. Once you know where they hang out, you can hang out there too.

Nice shot Tracey. There is no more difficult shot in bird photography than a small bird in flight. IMHO.
So much has to go right even with good light and an expensive setup. This is really a treasure. Bravo!
