Spreading Their Wings

posted in: Birds | 0

Capturing birds in flight is sometimes very difficult.  I have set one of my goals this year to try and capture more birds photos in flight and actually be able to get a shot that isn’t too blurry.

I searched through my bird photos to find some with extended wings.  There were lots but they were so blurry.  I’m wondering why I saved those ones.

This sparrow clings on with one claw and spreads its wings while it nibbles at what is left of the suet balls in the coil feeder.

The ruby throated hummingbird takes off from the feeder.

The hummer wings move so quickly they are frequently a blur.  I did manage to capture the wings in this photo of the male ruby throated hummingbird.

Here comes the male cardinal approaching for a landing at the safflower feeder.

Swans have huge wings and I captured a pair of swans flying over the bay.
