Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 8

in Feathered Friends5 months ago

Hello Feathered Friends Lovers

A new week will start with new theme in the Show Me A Photo Contest in Feathered Friends Community. After watching raptors for quite some time and trying to make a decent photo, finally I got with much cropping the next one of the hawk, sparrow hawk to be precise. So, the theme is



Another example is this seagull I caught in flight.


Sometimes the birds are too far, like this buzzard.


When the raptors appear, the seagulls begin to chase them and there is always a drama on the sky.



Got to say my examples are shot in pretty much gloomy days.

Now it is your turn and I am excited to see your entries and what birds you see flying in the sky.

Show me your photo of a bird, following these rules:

  • The photo must be your own.
  • Post in the community Feathered Friends
  • You may add more photos, but you should state which one is your entry, otherwise the first will be taken into account.
  • Tell us something about your photo/s.
  • Your photo must follow the weekly theme, which will be announced each Sunday.
  • Please put the link of your entry in the commment section of the contest post here.
  • Put in the title of your post that this is an entry for the contest.

Last, but not least - have fun!

If you create quality post with more images and interesting story about them, you could be nominated for OCD upvote. Making extra effort can give you bigger upvotes.

Next Sunday new theme will be announced along with the wiiners of this round.

A great theme for this week and a wonderful job explaining @ecency POINTS and tipping! I'm promoting this post on @ecency.

Thank you very much for your support!
It is great to see how much has improved and further developed Ecency.

The initiative with the Ecency points is really interesting and promising! A great way to boost the activity in the community! :)

I am quite excited to have an additional way to help boost community involvement!

True :) Getting more interesting by each day :) Hopefully people won't fly away when BTC and all altcoins hit it's cyclic bottom, as it happens almost every time :)

I'll still be here! 😁 I have watched them come and go over the years but I just keep adding more numbers to my hive balance.

Me too! I actually don't remember I've ever done a power-down here on Hive. Liquid H/HBD is another story, of course :D

Great theme for this week! Thanks @nelinoeva xx

Hello dear friend @nelinoeva good afternoon
Bird photography is difficult enough, flying in the sky becomes quite complicated, although I must admit that for you it seems it is quite simple. What beautiful photographs you have been able to capture.

Thank you very much for teaching us this image.
have a prosperous week

Well, it is not easy and I have to admit I deleted most of the images I took. I am constantky learning and the truth is that one has to practice more and more to achieve the desired results.
Thank you so much for your kind words! ☺

It is true what you say, in practice there are good results.
I wish you a happy day
