The Best Photo of The Week - starling's feeding
This is my entry for THE BEST PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Birds feeding! This is my new hobby. Well, I work just as an assistant, my babygirl is the boss, she is doing the main job, I just refill food supplies, and carry the bag... with camera and telephoto lens. No kidding! Seriously, recently it was my job almost on a weekly basis. Took a load of photos. . .
Pigeons is my baby's first and top, absolute passion, then come the sparrows and ducks. And recently there showed up a seagull that visit us exactly at home. Fantastic!
So, we often grab a wheat bread, a packet of millet groats (or pearl barley) and head to the local park, where we have a pond with ducks. And there are crowds of other visitors, as well...
heresheres a lot of photographers around, too :)))
They came here with same intentions, as us - huntingducks.
I stumbled upon a nice scene - a small club of pigeons decided to take a bath. Luckily, I witnessed the scene and took a dozen of funny captures. This was just of them.
Pigeons have a sharp eye when it concerns a food giveaway for free. They come momentarily in huge packs, theres a rivalry, some of them prefer even to walk over other folks heads and backs, to rush closer to the food.
Frankly speaking, I dont like pigeons. But I am not in charge here... (I am only in charge of the camera, tise).
She is the boss, as I already have mentioned. And she prefes :P
Aint the duck is smiling at us here? Whathink?
Myself, I feel more fascinated with starlings and sea gulls.
I have witnessed a splendid scene of feeding, though one naughty pigeon rushed in and tried to spoil my captures. But I've got still enough to illustrate a decent post -- I definitely will tell you this photo story in a separate post. It is worth it.
Ok, thanks for the visit, and next time!
