Against all odds - the miracle shots

posted on 23rd of november, 2009

I loved the blog from Angelaostafichuk about the shots that slipped away. Well here is quite the opposite, the miracle shots that made it against all odds.

I took that bird at a bird show aimed at school children. We had gatecrashed their private show with their blessing (we being me and my 3 little monsters aged 5, 3 and 4 months). Baby started to cry so I had to feed her - didn't want her to disturb the show and you're not allowed to walk around during a bird of prey show, so I could not have left anyway.

Bird appeared against the beautiful blue sky. I quickly shot with one hand, not looking at the settings and amazingly got away with it - the photo was accepted and even sold!
