Birds [Photo-Hunt]

Part of our Zoobic Safari adventure last September was a trek to this bird sanctuary. My bird photos are always blurry--birds are challenging subjects plus the fact that my camera is too slow to grab focus (yeah, blame it on the camera!). Good thing these birds didn't seem to mind when people started taking pictures. They were probably saying to each other, "Here we go again...just pretend to enjoy it!" :p


"A wise old owl sat on an oak, the more he saw, the less he spoke; the less he spoke the more he heard. Why aren't we like that wise old bird?"

I love that owl... looks straight out of a Harry Potter book. :)

I totally agree with you!! I admire pictures of birds, because they are hard to photograph.

These ones seem to like the posing, lol, beautiful shots and wise thought.

Happy PH and weekend!

Fave ko yung nasa second photo. Colorful. I also took a picture of the owl years ago but I don't have a soft copy with me right now for the hunt, so had another one. Happy weekend!

Agreed that birds are challenging subjects for photographers -- which is why I've been pretty amazed by the many good pictures, including yours, I've seen on this week's Photo Hunt! :)

I love the owl photo and I'm curious why they always portray an owl as a smart one?

You got great shots at the bird walk. I think birds are hard to photograph too. Happy weekend.

You can blame it on the camera if you like. Mine does the same thing. Silly birds just won't sit still when I want them to. Still, you found some good shots even with the challenge.

wow they're so colorful the first and second one birds! the shots are ok to me even if you said it's not the best shot, you caprured the owl's sharp eyes!
