10 of whatever you want…………..10 pictures of the same thing, different ways, different things…….whichever way you wanted to interpret it; so long as it had ‘10’ in the theme. Well, it is the 10/10/10. Great idea, and not as easy as I first thought.
Since I don’t take much else other than birds, I thought I’d stick with those. But how to interpret it?
I did think about this a lot, believe it or not, and I decided to do 10 of the same bird, but hopefully showing it 10 different ways. Yea, not very inspiring, or original perhaps; but it gave me a chance to trawl through some pictures, and pick out some of my personal favourites.
Some of them I haven’t posted before either, so here we go, 10 shots of a Heron.
A real punk hairstyle with this one. Caught him mid scratch.
We both surprised each other here. I was walking the edge of a lake, when up popped this head. We both stared at each other, before he flew off, and I managed a couple of shots. I like the angle of the eyes.
During the last winter, most of the lakes I visited were frozen over. This shot is at a place called Paxton Pits. The whole lake was solid, apart from one small area. This fox had decided to walk across the ice, and investigate the island in the middle of the lake. I think he decided, wisely, to leave the Heron alone.
Just a flight shot, but I liked the big white area he was flying into.
There are 11 Herons in this picture. One of our local lakes, Willen, has a Heronry on its island, and this particular day, some of them decided to stand in a group. I’ve never seen so many in one place before.
It’s the intense stare I liked in this one.
Another flight shot; this time with lunch. I’d watched him for a while, whilst he was fishing. He paraded around with it for a while after he caught it, then flew across the lake to eat it in peace.
Another ‘staring’ shot.
Coming in to land, and into the sun. I just liked the light in this.
And the final shot, was from a very cold winters morning, the day after Christmas, a couple of years ago.
He looked so fed up and cold; like he’s got a shawl wrapped around his shoulders.
Hope you enjoyed them; and thanks David, for a great idea.
