Project 365 Photo a day: 365/89

This morning we took the boys down to the lake so that they can go and play and climb in the trees.

I went my own way looking for the Mother Coot and her chicks and the Kingfisher but no luck.  So I went and sit on the little bench and watched the Geese and ducks swimming on the lake. I heard the Hadida’s screaming and the next moment they were flying off. I got this one just in time…

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/25

It’s cold outside and the pigeons are all sitting in little bundles on the branches to get warm.  One pigeon however sitting all alone on a branch way on top of the Oak tree caught my eye.

I took a photo of  it and then waited for it to take off. I stood outside in the cold for half an hour before the pigeon decided to take off. Only after I took the photo’s of the pigeon taking off I realized that I was still in manual mode. The photo’s did not come out really great.
