Blog Guelph: Zooming in on birds

Mobile photography is my thing, but sometimes i wish i had a huge honking zoom so i could get decent shots of cool and creepy birds.

I'm particularly fascinated by great blue herons and hooded mergansers because i rarely see them... and when i do, i'm either on a bus, in a car, or on the wrong side of the river. The one and only time i got close to a heron, i tripped on some wire hidden in long grass and missed my chance at what might have been a semi-decent shot.

Turkey vultures - which both intrigue and repulse me - are always out of range. 

I have yet to see an owl.  

So hats off to guelph's bird photographers... glad they share their great photos!
