You Wanna Piece of Me?

You wanna piece of me?
I had a fun time shooting these swans.

They didn’t seem to enjoy all of it though. Thrice they tried to scare me away by this interesting manoeuvre of stretching their necks long, pushing their heads close to the ground while looking directly at me and walking threateningly.

I was too scared to try and find out what happens at the end of the walk 😛

When you are on a trip and have a decent looking camera in your hand, everyone around you wants you to take a picture of the birds flying overhead, without thinking of whether you have the equipment to do a good job of it, or whether you are interested in even clicking that picture.

You either explain to them that not every photographer with a big camera is after birds or has the gear to take their pictures, or you just succumb and click a picture.

I did the latter. The Nikkor 70-300mm, my cheapest lens, pushing its limits here.

Shot while waiting for the boat to Janjira.
