Spread your wings and fly fly fly with #SMaP

Hello Hello friends of feathered friends!

Wings come in all shapes and sizes, at least I think so! I love to try to take pictures of birds. Catching a bird in flight is a great feeling, and I have many pictures of them in flight, however many of these are not what we would describe as any good🤣

However, today I would like to show you a few that I think are suitable to use for my entry to #SMaP Show Me A Photo Contest Round 77!

The theme for round 77 of #SMaP is: WINGS

I was not sure which to enter as my one picture, but the fun is in taking part.

So, I will start the post with my favourite bird, and of course it has the biggest wings...

This picture is my #SMaP round 77 entry

Yes I am talking about swans 🦢
If you would like to see some more swan pictures from this family, you can have a read of this post Meet the Swan family of Raith Lake


Before we head down to the seaside, I will show you a couple more of my favourite swan wing captures.

The way their wings curl, always reminds me of a heart, and I think one reason I love these birds.

Okay so I told a wee white lie, that was a couple more and now here is another couple more!

This next section will be birds in flight but not as the main focus...

This was me on the topdeck of a bus seeing if I could take come coastal shots, and who popped up but this wee seagull.

This was taken outside my front door this summer one evening, and just reminds me of a painting!

I find the colourings of magpies absolutely stunning and I almost caught the perfect wing shot to show you. See this is one of the many not so good shots.

In fact I take so many duff shots that it drives me batty🤣

That was enough of shots from my park and house, let's head on down to the seaside!

I love this shot, I feel it as if he is coming to smother you in his wings!
I was going to put this as the entry, but my loyalty to the swans own!

I will leave you with another gull shot. This one I think is a black headed gull, there are so many varieties that we have, that I need to make a wee study and see which ones we have on our doorstep.

Which picture for you symbolises wings the best?

I hope that you enjoyed my winging it on this post and have a fantastic rest of your weekend!

Walang anuman. I love to see your swans being flex... So far, I have been enjoying here. Though at first, it was a little hard for me to explore and communicate with others but now I learn a little and having fun around here.

Thank you!

VERY COOL bird shots. nicely captured, too.
I always prefer birds in action, whether perched and doing something or in flight, and doing something. ACTION makes for a good image.

Thanks so much, and I am with you on the ACTION. When they are doing something it really does give you a sense of Action.

Swans won my heart if you ask which picture simbolized the wings the best. They are so elegant.🙂
So enjoyable to go through all these nice shots and to be honest, if I were you, I would struggle to choose the entry photo.
Oh, and the bat is really cool.

hehe I think that the swans do win for me too. As you say they really are so excellent.
I could not resist putting in the wooden bat, as I have to do something in my posts🤣
It was hard to choose one, I think I had it down to three.
Always fun to put a post together for your competitions Neli, so thank you for all that you do😁

There's something about them birds spreading their wings like that or curling like that of the swans. I didn't know their wings could take the shape of the heart when they curl it like that. I would be skeptic if you said it but you have photos to prove it lol!
