A Word A Week Challenge : Zoom

Skinnywench from “A word in your ear” opens her dictionary at random and out pops a word. The challenge is to interpret it in either words or photos. This week the word is zoom.

The zoom lens creates so many photo opportunities and creative possibilities I would be in a photographic wilderness with out it. Capturing wild life would only be a blob on the horizon as it is so hard to sneak up close to them. As for birds they are up and away as soon as they see you. So forΒ this challenge I am going to show case a gallery of bird photos I have zoomed in on over the years.

  10. Do you know the name of the large black bird airing its wings on the branch is that a comorant? I saw a similar bird in the Lodi Gardens in New Delhi recently. I was able to get a few pics of it. One as it flew down off the branch to get a fish in the water. Hard to really make it out just the flurry of wings.

    • I love the challenge of sneaking up on wild life to capture and shoot them harmlessly on film. I can never understand how some people find excitement in gun sports
