Weekend Snapshot: Number 14


My weekend snapshot this week will feature a bird that put on a show for me and Bill at the Lake on Saturday. First, I snapped the group shot.Then I spotted a bird take off and start flying so I thought I'd try to snap a solo shot.
At first I thought I better snap a quick shot before it flew off or landed with the group again.But the strangest thing happened, it kept circling a wide sweep overhead and there were a few times I thought it was going to fly straight at us.
I almost wondered if it thought my camera was full of bread crumbs and it wanted to be first in line if I tossed them into the lake, like people sometimes do.
Then I decided that it was a natural performer wanting its show to be recorded by the lady with the camera.So I obliged and kept photographing its air dance until it got tired and went back to the flock.So that's it for my weekend snapshots. I hope everyone has a great week. To find out how to join WS and to find other participants, you can got to the home of weekend snapshot and you can also find participants at technorati -

A lovely sunny day to take pictures, it has been very cloudy here for a long time. I bought a camera a month ago but I am still pretty clueless about taking photographs. Once I know what I am doing I thought I might join one of the photo groups.

Thanks for checking in at my new blog and leaving a comment I hope to see you there again. I put you on my blogroll so I will also pop over and see how you are doing.

Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. I'll look forward to seeing some of your photos who mentioned that you haven't posted a weekend snapshot yet but will start soon. It's a fun activity.

Deb (Unrelenting Ambiguity) said...

How funny that we both did bird shots this weekend! I find them very challenging to take pictures of, especially when they are flying! Great job with yours, they came out very nicely!

Thanks for the visit!

Miss Melanoma said...

Hope you're doing well, and thinking of you often.
