Red Bellied Woodpecker

I am smitten by birds in flight. The challenge to photograph them has been issued.
She delights me.
On my list of needs is, "bugs for the birds".
A Dove in full flight would be nice.

I think when you see birds in flight you really notice just how majestic they really are...

Dear Deb,

The birds are majestic!

Learning stop action photgraphy will help with Hummingbirds too! Last summer I was able to get some good shots, this coming year I hope to get those "Oh my!" pictures I long for.
Should help with butterflies too.

Maybe I will see a running deer this winter!
Before knowing I was capable of "stop time" I was concerned "in motion" was not for me. Now another window has opened up. I am somewhat comfortable with timed exposures.Thus I can do my lights and candles and some moom and star shots.
With so many birds in and out of the yard I have flight all around. Plenty of opportunity to practice.
Once I begin learning something I am pretty good at staying with the lessons until I have it. My husband is a good teacher.
Wish me luck.
