Time to take "Flight"

7 posts in this topic

Well not quite, but this little one has to be given an "A" for the effort anyway! grin

As I was focused in and shooting this young Kildeer it suddenly decided to attempt a "take-off". It began frantically flaping it's tiny, under developed wings and at the same time began running as fast it as it's legs would go.

This was quickly followed by a massive leap upwards with it's stuby little wings beating frantiacally all to no avail!

In the end the little Kildeer failed at it's attempt to take to the air. However I suspect it would be long before success will be the order of the day!

In this last photo it looks like he or she is attempting to look like a ghost! wink

These are amazing photos! You can see how undeveloped the ends of those wing feathers are.
