It is always a challenge to take photos of any kind of animals, because most of the time they are moving or hiding behind some plants. That makes it difficult to get them sharp. Either they are motion blurred or out out focus. In this month's gallery I want to share some of my lucky shots with birds.

I took these photos during various vacations to different parts of the world, as well as at a local river bank and parks.

You can view the photos here or in the sidebar gallery at right or in my Google Plus Photo Album.
