Normally on Monday I’d be walking with Jo, but with our younger daughter home, we’ll be biking at the Indiana Dunes again today and as I get a post ready on Sunday night, I’ve decided to go with the Lens Artists Challenge of action.  Here are two different action shots for your viewing enjoyment.

  1. Dan Antion says:

    Great photos for the prompt. The in-flight shot is remarkable.

    • Thanks, Dan. My iPhone 6s has a “live” feature on the photos, so they’ll actually move as the subject did during the shot. I just realized a few days ago that by going to “edit” you can choose which shot to use (on the squirrel shot, for instance. But the heron photo was with my Nikon.

    Wonderful action shots, Janet! That squirrel is priceless!

  3. I like them both Janet! Not easy to capture a moving object!

  4. It looks like the bird could be the stimulus for the squirrel’s reaction. Thanks for the chuckle today.

    There’s nothin like a blurry squirrel –really captures their speeds! I hope you’re enjoying your day at the Dunes! 🙂

  6. Tina Schell says:

    Two terrific and complimentary shots Janet. I liked Allan’s interpretation 😊

    • Thanks, Tina. I didn’t even think about that when I posted them both, but it would work…just more than 1,000 miles apart, which makes their eyesight amazing. 🙂

    well how fun as we went from the deck to the air – nice

  8. Lignum Draco says:

    I love that 2nd one. So many different ways to capture or portray movement.

    • I agree about the ways to capture action, Lignum. I was really happy with that second shot, as too many times I’ve gotten the blur of motion rather than a good shot of the bird itself.

    Beautiful shots, both, Janet! 🙂 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend together.

  10. I love that Blue Heron in flight shot Janet! Well done!
