Bird Image: Just Call These Geese Snap Crackle and Pop
A couple of times a week, they cross my path, when out with the camera.
They never seem to hold a pose for more than a second or two.
Most of the time the three of them, never look in the same direction at the same time.
Over 300 times, the shutter snapped, trying to get a good composition today.
It was way past sundown when, I finally walked back to the office and downloaded the camera.
People could suspect a man standing in the road, talking to birds, may be a little crazy.
It's not nice, to throw rocks in order to get the wildlife, posing.
So, I try other stuff, while I'm looking through the view finder, to get the right shot.
Wiggling my fanny and trying to make rattlesnake noises, didn't work.
Then I tried, "Hey, birds there's a tiger over there, sneaking up on you!" Didn't work.
This photo was one of the last shots, I took today and, I sort of like it.
It's not a proven technique yet but, I thought I'd pass along to everyone, how it was done.
Sing that Rice Krispy song about Snap, Crackle and Pop.
And, when you get to the part about Pop, stomp a yellow flip-flop with your right foot.
It worked alright for me !
