Thought I would try my hand at a spot of wild life shooting, the camera type and not with a gun, while on vacation. Near to where we are staying are a number of lakes. The lakes have abundance of wild fowl and birds either padding or flying around the lake. As this is my first attempts at this genre of picture taking, I am quite pleased with the results so far and hope to continue to improve my skills. One thing I have learned is to be quick and have continuous shutter working.
