As well as trying to take photos of birds in flight or doing something cool like catching a fish I also like to try and look out for silly shots. Quite often they amuse only one person – that’d be me – but it breaks things up a little. Sometimes though these silly shots end up taking longer than you’d expect.
I thought it would be fun to try and capture Eider Ducks wondering around the sign above. On arrival there were a number of them wondering happily underneath the sign – as soon as they spotted the camera they became shy and ended up walking past the sign, around the sign or away from it.
Thankfully, after what seemed a lifetime, two Eider Ducks obligingly walked under the sign and the shot was taken. To be honest, it doesn’t seem that funny now but I was determined to get the photo!
