Post Christmas Teasers






I Trust that you all had a pleasant Christmas?

If, like me, you've consumed an excess of food and drink and are feeling too lethargic to get up and go out for some much needed after Christmas exercise, then I've got something just for you,  a little quiz!  (at least your brain will get a some exercise!!)

We all get (a few!!) images were the subject moves or we're trying to be clever and are using a far slower shutter speed than is sensible, and the outcome...blurred images!  Well instead of discarding them (all) to the recycle bin I've been cropping and enhancing some of them in Photoshop with the result that I've now got a selection of abstract images that I call 'Bird Blur'.

 So here's the quiz...can you identify the birds in the following images? some are easy but a couple may get you thinking! There's no prizes on offer but I will post the answers (for those that are still struggling!) in a few days time....Have fun!...[;o)

No.2

No.3

No.6

A brilliant quiz and thanks.

A great idea Trevor I have loads of images just like these.
My efforts were similar to Keiths so a quick stab at No.10 Goldcrest as I have just captured my first images of them.
Take care.
