There must have been at least 30 pigeons sitting on the grass, and I thought it’d make a great action shot. The pigeons however, had other ideas, content to sit eating while I took photos of them. As I went to walk away, they suddenly all took off, flying over my head to a nearby roof, which lead to some interesting photos!
I didn’t actually use the camera screen to line up the photo – there wasn’t time! I just aimed in the vague direction, and kept taking photos until they’d all flown over.
Using my camera’s ‘sports mode’ was obviously a good choice – the photo shows every bird mid flight, with no blurry wings!
