My theory is if I take enough photos, I will fluke a few decent shots along the way.  This is one of them.  There's a little fantail that flits around chasing insects in the tree outside my spare room window, and bumps into the glass pane a lot.  I couldn't count the number of times I've tried get a photo of it but it is always too fast.  It sees me on the other side of the window pane and disappears.  I was going through my shots, deleting one after the other, then stopped at this one.  I don't know why but I really like it. 

Last week I posted photos of the netball playing grand-daughter.  On Saturday the soccer player asked did I have any photos of her playing.  I said no, I couldn't get close enough and the ball moves too fast for me.  But I gave it a go.

She plays defence and I'd love to get a shot of her right up in the face of her opposition, she is fearless, but this is the best I could do.  

Archer, her best friend ever, is much easier to photograph as he waits for some action in goal.


  1. I fluke a lot of photos, it seems.

  2. Pauline, the penultimate shot is fine. Just crop in closer. When you have it sussed then could you pop along to the beach volleyball game...the grown ups one please.

  3. Oh my gosh. It's obviously a long time since I saw Archer!

  4. I have the same problem with photographing birds. The soccer shots are good.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
