SATURAY CRITTERS - Travelling to a farm at Glynn (Part 4)

For those of you that have never seen a Dipper, let me tell you they are never still so these shots are as good as I could manage although the video at the end of this post will give you a better idea of it.  Photographed at Glynn River.


















 A few Mallards also in the river.

  1. Lovely. So many birds make greased lightening seem slow - and predictable don't they?

  5. Love how it can stand seemingly steady in fast flowing water. Another picture makes it look like the bird is actually walking on water.

  7. Oh wow, this is my first view of a Dipper. Thanks for showing it. I photographed little stints for the first time while birding with my SIL in Kwa-Zulu Natal last month. They're like little sewing machines - never still. Have a great day. Jo

  8. Yes, it's difficult to capture a bird that is always on the move. Despite that, you got some good shots.

  12. Yes I can why they move so much to be able to capture a clear shot of it. Nice video and images!

  14. Sweet little bobbing motion, and you did well to capture these shots when bobbing, hiding and running quickly are characteristics of the dipper. Loved the vídeo.:)
