Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #9: Action (Birds)

This week Patti’s is hosting the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #9: Action.

Many of birds can also run, jump, swim, and dive. They do so to compete for food resources.

Two Brown Pelicans dived side by side into the water:

And, the strong one claims his territory by spreading his wings:

When the Egret spreading out his/her wings, it is magnificent.

Patti is encouraging us to share photos of nature, people, objects, or animals on the move, action in the sky or on land, on the playing field or on a busy street.  You don’t want to miss Patti’s action post. 

Eight Easy Ways to Reduce Your Plastic Waste By doing so, you’ll be helping birds and other wildlife.

  1. Good morning, Amy,
    Great (action) shots! 🙂 It’s the one of the goose taking off that I like most. Just now I’m going through my pictures from Port A. I got birds in motion there, too. But not as good shots as yours, not by a long measure. I hope I can post them soon, maybe even later today.
    Have a wonderful Sunday,
    Pit

  4. Hi Amy! So excited to see a photo challenge continuing! These photos are beautiful! I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from blogging (not photography 😄—still taking tons of photos!) but am excited to get back to it. I was always so inspired by the WPC. Glad to see you and a few other continue!

  5. Amy great captures. I will share my blond moment with you (but please don’t tell anybody else sshh). Regarding your second photo I momentarily thought you are pulling a fast one on us a you turned the image upside down, till I realized that the very low clouds might through a spanner in my theory … 🙂 🙂 I have never sees such an upside down capture – impressed

  6. Very nice photographs here, Amy!
    I’m glad you posted the link regarding the dangers of plastic. Hopefully this has reached people who aren’t aware of the full impact we’re having. I tell people all the time that recycling isn’t enough – we need to make better decisions as consumers.
