Action shots

Every so often I am lucky enough to capture an "action shot".

Often these events are precipitated by crows and I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to these birds. They have helped me find owls, hawks and foxes by their raucous calling and scolding.

  1. The first shot looks quite friendly... as if the bird on the back was just hitching a ride!
    Amazing shots!
    it's daffy ;o)

  2. It's not easy to take bird in the sky shots, so well done, but the bird on the heron is great. I've never taken a good heron shot either. I used to see plenty near Sarnia, but they were always on brown, grubby stream banks.

  3. Wonderful pictures! I was working on the plot one day and watched raucous crows mobbing a grey heron virtually overhead.
    I stood and looked in awe! Flighty xx

  4. Wow! Amazing, amazing shots.
