Recently, in the evening I had two hours of free time, so as not to waste it in an empty, took a camera and went to the forest lake, where, often enough to bask in the sunshine and dine, herons fly.
It took about 15 minutes. On reaching the destination, I did not just get a camera, but decided to go and look around. But, alas, the birds on the lake was not. A walk is not a lot back to the car and decided to ride search landscape types, as The weather was wonderful. Evening, and it looks like a storm was approaching, so that the light and the sky was very photographic.
After traveling about a kilometer stopped, got out and decided to look around (look for the frame). The camera was resting peacefully in his bag in the back seat, and the lens body lay in the trunk.
The sky was a sight for sore eyes on, but the pictures were so far nothing. I stood there, breathing the air predgrozoy "soaked up" the surrounding views. Heavy rain clouds were coming at the setting sun's rays penetrated through the gaps. And here is 7-10 meters, the field has risen a bird of prey, and flew up. Realizing that the camera does not have time, I was afraid to miss a moment, and visual pictures, like predatory flies in the light and broken clouds. Seeing that the subject did not take the time to fly away, and hoping that luck will be with me balgosklonna I went to the car, pulled out from the trunk of the body of the lens and sat in the back seat buckled it to the camera. Predator flew not far away. So I started a camera. As if teasing or mocking me, a large bird began slowly removed. Trying to catch up with his foot did not succeed. Running back to the car, I tried to catch him in the car, but when we were not a lot, handsome disappeared into the woods.
I do not know what it was for the birds. I understand that this frame is (probably) will not be repeated. But I know exactly what will come back again and again to this place, hoping that luck will be merciful to me, and I can capture the predator in all its glory.
