Always Take More Than One Photo.

 ~~~~~

I learned quickly to take more than one photo

while in Africa in 2013…

although I did not need much encouraging.

By the time I sighted this African Harrier Hawk I really

had a lead finger and have included the photo numbers

to give an idea of how many shots were taken.

Of the first four photos…

there is little difference…

and either one…

of them would look okay.

At least in my opinion.

However, by keeping the shutter clicking away…

I captured several other poses, followed by…

my favourites of the series.

Although the bird’s head is obscured by its wings,

it is a good lead…

 for the final shot included in this post.

I could have settled for one shot but would probably

have missed this shot, which I think is the best.

There is no cluttered background…and a bird in flight.

This afternoon I took a few shots for the Travel Theme.

and included two in CCYC also.

This morning, before the sun warmed up

all the flowers were closed and all we saw

was a mass of green.

  1. Wonderful photos of the hawk, Wooly. Loved seeing all the different poses before its flight. The final shot is an amazing capture. The shadows just bring it to a different level of excellence.
