Our fine feathered friends, the birds, make great photography subjects. They can be challenging to photograph though, hence why this week’s photography challenge is – you guessed it – birds!
If you struggle to capture images of the fast ones in mid-air, try to find a bird closer to the ground like this peacock I found at the Auckland zoo strutting his stuff. Chickens, emus, and penguins are all a bit slower and easier to photograph – although you may not have any penguins in your area.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Birds
Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer, upload them to your favorite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
