Flight of the P........

Photo taken in York, UK. Near Skeldergate Bridge. (Entered 'Explore' at 369#, then dropped out)


Trying to photo a moving pidgeon is nearly impossible. I had the idea of walking slowly into a flock and just clicked the shutter a few times without looking through the viewfinder as at the same time the birds were almost colliding with my body and head!. As you can see the haphazard technique worked...with a better result than I could have imagined. Goodness knows how lucky it was to get the pidgeon's face in focus!! (needless to say the other photo's taken were poor).
