It’s not like I didn’t know both birds were there. I had already taken a few shots. I thought to get a little closer. Then…
One flew right to me, and made a small twist to sail directly in my path. The shot above was at 150mm, as close as I could go.
The next shot, same bird I pushed out a little. Way too close. The bird surprised me by flying to me.
Just as I lowered the camera…
The second bird, same flight path, same dumb camera moves.
The photographs are interesting but cut off in places and the speed a little too slow. Camera guy a little slow too.
In my defense when did these big birds start running people over?
