Weekly photo challenge – Unfocused

This week’s photo challenge theme makes me happy, because I have a lot of out of focus shots just lying around – wildlife move at the most inopportune moments! The one out of focus shot I adore is one I took last autumn at Pelham Bay. A bird was perched on some beautiful yellow foliage, and just as I snapped the photo it launched into flight. I love everything about this photo; the colours, the fact that the leaves are sharp but the bird is soft and the bird’s beautiful eye turned skyward in preparation for flight.

    1. I wish I could claim that this was intentional, but in fact it was just a happy accident. I was trying to take a photo of the bird at rest, and just as the shutter clicked, the bird launched. If I had tried to capture the moment, you’d currently be looking at the photo of a branch. 🙂
