Why Birds In-Flight Photography
Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird? (David Attenborough)
Birds in flight fascinates me. Since I was little when I would see a bird or its inflight one thing happens and its silence. As I did grow up then I realized the silence was to become part of what was happening. In order to get closer to birds. It’s necessary to freeze and be silent so that you don’t make them uncomfortable. Its when you snap the best close photos of birds.
In Australia unlike other parts of the world. Birds are protected and there is so many birds of prey and other beautiful birds. Just in Victoria Australia there are so many bird sightings that you can get close to many different types of birds.
Nature parks in Victoria and other parts of Australia you will find many birds that are not in other parts of the world. In some parts of Australia, is the migratory route for birds that fly from as far as from Siberia – Russia escaping the harsh winter. In Melbourne its only only 45 min drive from Melbourne city at Bird Watching
Brown falcon are one of the most common widespread birds in Victoria and Australia. I photographed this Falcon flying in Brisbane ranges national park. The brown falcons are among Australian raptors
This is Australia’s largest flying bird The Brolga. They stand a meter tall and their wings can span up to 2.4 meters. Even when I was taking this photo, it was my guess this must be the largest bird I have ever seen. I took this photo at Spit nature conservation reserve. This conservation reserve is where you can spot many migratory birds
Straw necked Ibis is also one of Australia’s large birds. Its among the water birds and can be see in parts of Victoria. I spotted this bird flying from a direction of You yang’s mountain towards Avalon airport. I quickly got my camera and took this photo.
Among Australia’s large birds is the black and white cormorant. What fascinates me about these birds is the flying speed. They are large and can fly faster. They are water birds ad spend most of there time feeding in lakes, ponds, swamps and in the sea.
