Leaf hopping is fun

I love this shot! Mr Glean was collecting aphids from the rosebushes, and just as he started to take flight, I got this shot. It looks to me as though he is hopping across the leaf-tops.

Ive been getting a few of these "Frozen Flight" shots lately. It just fascinates me how a birds wings move. If it fascinates me, it might interest you, so I will share Frozen Flight shots from time to time - cool?

Very cool. You don't normally see the moves they make like that - the act of taking off or landing. He looks so awkward!

Indeed he looks like he is hopping from leaf to leaf. You must be very patient to capture images like these.

BetteJo It does look awkward doesnt it - I always think they look so graceful - but slow the action down and ... whoa!

Ces Teeheehee I do take ALOT of pictures Ces - its often a fun way to avoid doing something Im supposed to be doing :)
