Big birds are easier to practice on, but I can never seem to get a different enough swan shot.
The Heron though, is usually a different matter.
He'll either shout as he goes away from you, or sometimes he's just so slow, he begs to be experimented with.
Groups of geese are always good to practice with too. Plenty of them, and they're big.
Coming down in size, one of my favourite birds around here at the moment. The Goosander.
And a good all year round favourite, the Mallard.
A size smaller, quite an elusive bird, I find, for getting close and getting pictures. The Green Woodpecker.
More practice on the smaller birds is needed this year, and I guess a good challenge would be a Wren in flight.
The sun is shining today, and I'm stuck indoors waiting for a delivery. A new hard drive, to replace this one, because it keeps crashing at awkward moments. Still, at least it is still working, kind of.
Hope your day is better.
