Sunday Stills: Shallow Depth of Field

This week’s Sunday Stills prompt was ‘Shallow Depth of Field’.   It all sounds a bit techie to me, but here’s what I’ve chosen.  Hope it fits the bill.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

      Hi Bill, no I don’t. This was taken in Australia four or five years ago. Judging from the way the neck is folded, I’d think it’s some kind of marshland or waterside bird used to getting its food from the water, but I can’t be sure. Hope all is well with you. 🙂


  2. Lovely shots, Sandra. The bird is my favourite too. 🙂

  5. I don’t know what depth of field is. I suppose I should go figure it out. Love the two non-deer-menaced day lilies.

    wow, whats that bird? ………..loved your pics for the challenge dear, keep it up 🙂


    • Sandra says:

      Sorry Henry, don’t know what the bird is. I think that neck is folded back, judging from the swelling at the front so it’s probably a long-necked one. Maybe a heron?


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
