Forgot to tighten off the tripod head and it slowly rotated during the 6sec exposure. Actually, I kinda like it though!

Nothing wrong with the picture, but the story around it is much worse.
It happened on april 13 2008, I got up early and drove 110 km to the airport to take pictures,
After a while and only a few aircraft, I heard on the radio that the security and fire department on the
airport where on a strike and there were only a few aircraft landing, so another spoiled day, and a
spoiled sleep.

The shot that got away
« Reply #27 on: March 16, 2009, 04:09:10 PM »
I decided to try my hand at birding yesterday at some property I own about 20 minutes away from any city. I didn't end up getting much of anything, but I did have one (almost) nice shot that slipped away. Had I been prepared for this Cardinal to take off, I may have gotten it, but now it's just "The shot that got away." I did what I can in editing, but you can easily tell it's been worked over.



I just though it'd be fun for everyone to share some other "Shots that got away." :D

One of the most beautiful sights this time of year is the courtship dance of the Great Crested Grebe.

A pair will come face to face and nod and shake their heads at each other with their gorgeous crests raised.

Then – as they become more committed they will each get a long drape of pond weed in their beaks and rise up vertically in the water still facing each other whilst shaking the weed.

These two got the weed in.........

then went behind the reeds

Does anyone else suffer from the same problem?
