A few awkward animal moments
Jul 3, 2011

About a month ago I had a chance to do some late afternoon / early evening boat-based shooting in a wetland in northern Australia with my recently-acquired A55 and 70-400. Had a lot of fun, but during sorting and PP I noticed a few "bloopers" where the subjects chose the moment of capture to do something a little different. Since we get some great wildlife shots on this forum I thought I'd share a few alternative shots that didn't quite turn out as expected.

Feel free to share your own....

Another whistling kite blinking (or maybe winking?)

Darter having a bit of a 1-legged scratch (or maybe I interrupted his yoga session?)
