Flying Birds;

These pictures were taken this spring while Coots and Gulls were still in the lake of our city park.  I remember excited seeing them flying elegantly like these for the first time. When I cropped the pictures, I thought they might be bearable for posting ;-) 
Thanks to blogging, it was quite an excitement for me ♡♡♡ 


Thank you very much for stopping by;

PS> I bought a new camera a couple of days ago. As my chance to catch birds around my area is nearby river bank, my old one didn't have enough zoom.  Well, I'm not sure how the new one (not  SLR) works. Wish me luck p;)

Hello Miyako, I too enjoyed seeing these shots. They have captured the activity on the lake so well. Also, some 'wings in motion' shots - just beautiful.
Have fun getting to know your new camera :D)

Hi Miyako san. These are such great pictures! Looks very active around the lake :-)
I hope you'll like your new camera. I have been using my iPhone as camera these days as my regular camera doesn't take very good pictures, especially in the night time. Maybe I'll get nice camera some time in the future :-)
Have a wonderful weekend, Miyako san!
