Day 175 - Killdeer In Flight

Our usual Friday morning visit to the lake always yields awesome photo opportunities. Today was no disappointment. I was trying to sneak in on 3 different killdeer but they spook really easy and don't let you get close at all. Apparently I got too close cause this guy took off. I had to crop this down to really show the details, but it turned out pretty cool., huh?!

Oh well of course I LOVE it, but then I just love birds. I know how difficult it can be and how quick you have to be to get these!! Have a great weekend...

Awesome!! What lens do you use for these?

I'll say. I think it turned out great! Even if you did have to crop it a lot. I had a photo like that of a tiger a few weeks back that was ho hum until I cropped it, then it was awesome (if I do say so myself). ; )

So that's what a killdeer looks like... a friend lived on Killdeer Island, but I had never seen the bird. Your photo is absolutely awesome, of course.
