I'm Late and I'm in a Hurry

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 19 April 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Have you ever tried to photograph a bird that is flying across in front of you. Panning and focusing does not always work. They just seem to be able to fly 1/4 turn ahead of the focus ring on my camera.

A little creative manipulation and voila, an image that does not look to bad.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

It looks great !!! And here's something really interesting...day after tomorrow, I start with a series of shots, at a surf contest, and same problem as you.....those guys ride waves too fast.......but I took the ones that didn't work out, and played with them, just as you have, and got some pretty cool results.....Seems that great minds think alike !!!!
