Sometimes the  situation indicates motion even if there is no blur. This crow seems to have the same doubts I have about where things are going.

Motion photography, like nature photography, is at its best with a good background (not as easy as it sounds).

More than one subject in motion can help tell a story, in this case fleeing from the marital bed

A bit of motion in the subject and background can show drama, and possible tell a story (here the bird is shaking water off its wings).

When you stop motion with high shutter speeds and follow your subject (twist you waist not your feet), the background blurs showing motion but our subject will be focus.

This week I am focusing on motion. High shutter speeds stop motion, lower speeds show motion blur.

It’s not the moon, but for a young goose it might as well be for all the effort it takes.

The hole in the stucco gave the sparrows a perfect nest and observation point on the crossroads.

Not a bird on a wire, just something natural.

As birds go the heron family make for great stalkers. Here a great blue heron is searching for fish along the shoreline.

Like other birds, geese are very protective of their young. Quite a sight when you see a family out for a swim.
