In a flap


Photo Information
Been trying to get a shot like this with wing movement but a sharp head for a while when I go out walking with my camera. Not perfect but my best attempt so far.

Not bad attempt at all - certainly at the size of the displayed image it looks pretty sharp around the head. This is one of my 'would like to get' type shots as well!

Nicely done George - and made me smile.

The reason? A few years ago - armed with my new K-r - I was in the lake district waiting for a ferry when a number of ducks started flapping like this and I fired off a number of half hearted 'grab shots'. To my amazement - I ended up with several images that were pin sharp in the right places with great motion on the wings - even a couple of low flying and landing ducks.

Flush with this success - I them went on a number of trips to RSPB sites trying to get some more - and to date - have never repeated the success

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more
