Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 155

in Feathered Friends2 months ago

Hello Feathered Friends Lovers,

Welcome to #SMaP Show Me A Photo Contest Round 155

There are few changes in the contest. First, the contest post will be published later than usual. Until now I tried to be punctual and the contest post to be publishes at 1.30 pm Eastern European Time (EET). From now on, I will publish it at 8.00 pm Eastern European Time (EET).

Next change is about the Ecency points, you can see when you scroll and read the update. I am happy to say we will give 600 points to each winner and 60 points as a tip to each valid entry.

And now the challenge. Let me see your Lucky Shots. When it comes to photograph birds, each shot can be considered lucky. It is hard to predict where the bird will hop or how will turn and what will do next. You can't simply tell it to stay put or to turn the way you wish. So, it is more likely a free theme again, but still I wish to tell me why you think your entry photo is lucky.

Here is my first example. It was once only to spot two green woodpeckers together and trying to get both in frame I always have one of them blurry and out of focus. This is something I have to work on it and to understand better. However, I did not know that I have that lucky shot of them, while one is hopping and spreading the wings. That is my first lucky shot, because it was more likely accidental.





My next example is the photo of the Greenfinch, who was gathering material for the nest. Why this shot is lucky? I did not know that the bird had something in its beak until I focused and luckily I had several shots with that feather. I have not seen again a Greenfinch with building material. 😄


Now is your turn and let me see your photos of birds, but first read carefully the rules below⬇️


Show me your photo of a bird, following these rules:

  • The photo must be your own.
  • Post in the community Feathered Friends
  • You may add more photos, but you should state which one is your entry, otherwise the first will be taken into account.
  • Tell us something about your photo/s.
  • Your photo must follow the weekly theme.
  • Please put the link of your entry in the comment section of the contest post here.
  • Put in the title of your post that this is an entry for the contest. (Optional)
  • Use #smap as a tag.

Last, but not least - have fun!

If you create quality post with more images and interesting story about them, making extra effort can give you bigger upvotes and attract curators. Keep that in mind.
