Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Not an easy thing as I generally take static shots (trees don’t tend to break into jive or tap), but I found a few…

the whipping of young trees in my scrappy little front garden in the storms last month:

The movement of water: The river lapping at the easternmost border of MtLawleyShire

Birds:

A swan preening at Matilda Bay

Cormorants at Matilda Bay doing cormorant things:

Peacocks at the University of Western Australia, The male proud & walking fast:

 

His pale wife less elegantly eating a biscuit:

Hyde Parks birds:

A trio of ibis marching to elsewhere

Coots paddling:

 

Swamps hens – always moving, never still:

 

Heron catching something:

& ducks:

Honeyeater on the water bowl I have in my garden & a wee willy wagtail singing his heart out on my fence:

 

& this is a young cat who was playing with me on my walk home one afternoon:

And now – the PLush-de-resistance: Fattee Cattee.  Always moving, seemingly impossible to catch.  Aren’t I lucky we’re digital now!

She had followed me two houses down:

 

Coming to meet me after I’ve been out, then rolling on the concrete:

 

And then –

Coming to get me for DINNAH!!!

I’ve included as many links as Zemanta has come up with…

    Great shots on theme! Do you get snow down there? It would be great to trade blizzards and salted streets for a chance to go to the park to photograph large and colourful birds.

    • snow is exceedingly rare – it snowed twice last century, the last time in 1992, not that any of the snow hit the ground of course 🙂 I’d love to trade blizzards – if we had them 😀
