Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity
This week’s topic for the Weekly Photo Challenge is opportunity, and the way I took the announcement is that they were looking for photos taken at the spur of the moment. To me, there are few situations that require a photographer to react quickly when an opportunity presents itself as birds in flight.
In fact, as you can see, I reacted a little too quickly and didn’t get all of the lead bird’s bill in the photo. I could have cropped it out of this photo, but I like the fact that I was able to get one goose with its wings on the downbeat, one with its wings level, and the last goose with its wings on the upbeat. This opportunity was too good to pass up, the geese were at close range, against a bright blue sky, and with the lighting about as good as it gets for trying to get a photo of a large bird in flight.
