Frantic Feeding

 birds feeding on the river cam cambridge

It was like something from the movie The Birds....

I never actually counted the number of birds present in this weeks "feeding frenzy" but it must have been over a hundred. Of the over thirty images I took in the frantic few minutes that was the aforementioned feeding frenzy, this was the sharpest.

What you can't see in the image above is the focal point of the bird's attention and that was the woman standing a few feet away trying to feed each one of them! Have a look at the image below to see the other "story of the shot".

She seemed surprisingly nonplussed about how the close the birds were getting to her - particularly the very inquisitive swan to her left!
