However, most of this shots I have posted have been classic bird portraits - what I have come to call 'guide book shots'. Now, before people get all excited and think that I want to change the kinds of posts people can link to WBW, thats not the case - I just want to remind people that all kinds of images are welcome on WBW, not just guide book shots.
So, here are my images for this week - they are all seascapes with birds. Watching birds on the sea is a remarkable experience. The grace and the simple sleek way in which they catch up to and them overtake noisy, fume producing boats is remarkable.
Albatros, with their effortless flight. Gannets with they angular flight and plunging dives.
These shots really, really need to be seen at a bigger size - so click on them to see a better version.
In the two Albatross shots you may be able to see flocks of Short Tailed Shearwaters (Mutton Birds) in the background just above the horizon.
The rock slabs behind the gannets have been turned a remarkable colour by a sea mist that is not really visible in any other way. All I know is that I had to dry the front elements of lenses regularly!
Hope you enjoy these slight different takes on Wild Birds.
