ODD SHOTS MONDAY- HIDE AND SEEK


I'm thinking of starting a range of humourous critters greetings cards. What do you think? The humans run away when they see me and my camera. Not so the animals and birds. Almost seem to perform when they see me appear on the horizon. Two minutes earlier these ducks were perfectly happy waddling about. Then in unison, it was heads down for the camera lady. Maybe they weren't performing afterall? Perhaps they were hoping I'd pass them by if they weren't displaying their heads and fine beaks. Don't be silly it's Odd shots Monday and hiding ducks will do just fine. More Isle of Man birds immortalized as greetings cards coming soon. Well it will be if they keep behaving like this!

Like your idea about the animal cards! Like these photos, too. I'll keep my eyes open for such shots, and will be sure to carry my long lens more often.

c'est béte que l'on ne puisse pas agrandir la photo. j'aime bien ;o))
it is annoying that we can not enlarge the photo. I like ;o))

Yes they understand us more than humans do =D

Love how they hid their heads at the same time lol!

Dragonstar said...

Synchronised hiding - love it! All this hiding from the camera could give a photographer some kind of complex.

Jim said...

You are too funny. I get the same reaction as you do around people, they run.

Jacqui said...

Oh you do make me laugh. I think you have been to the taxidermist and had them stuffed like the robin and chaffinch. very fuuny little image again.

Now that's a great catch for ODD SHOTS!!!!! Maybe if they can't see you, they think you can't see them? Ü
Thanks for dropping by to see mine.

Hi,
Thank you.
Nice photo..

Me & my puppies said...

Yes, I, also, make greeting cards from some of my photos. This certainly would make a fun one.

raf said...

Go for that line of cards, yes. You would do well! Love your Odd Shot today and it was good to finally meet George. Fine photo of a handsome pelican.

lavenderlady said...

You might just have a market for your card line...people love seeing animals do funny things. Let us know how it goes.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Very funny that they both did it at the same time!

Dirty Knees said...

How comical! I wonder why ducks do that.

Sharon said...

I think the cards are a gret idea! I'd love to see them. This is a cute post, the story made me laugh.

Katney said...

It must be a conspiracy as it is so well synchronized.

Knoxville Girl said...

This photo would make a great greeting card. Birds can be funny like this. A parakeet that I had many years ago would turn his back on me when displeased. His philosophy was "you don't exist if I can't see you." Maybe these ducks had the same idea.

Kim said...

I found them, my turn to hide :)

Chuck Pefley said...

Hah! I think they realized you had both and agenda and a deadline -:)

ShutterSpy said...

I love finding coincidental pattern like this - I have a (not so good) photos of two identically positioned cows like this :-D

Matthieu said...

Nice shot. I hope your proposal will be successful.

CrazyCath said...

Great shot. I got some like this yesterday but I don't think they all hid at the same time! I do find it quite funny how they hide their heads and definitely odd!
