Motion Blur: Photographing Birds in Flight

I have been working on lessons taught by Lisa Langell a month ago in a webinar hosted by Arizona Highways Photoscapes. In particular, I am still very much working on my skills in shooting and editing photos intended to be partially blurred. I intend to show you what I mean in more posts in the coming days, but for now, here is one such photo, taken at Old Walnut Canyon Road Lake in late August. Much to my great surprise, when I arrived there in the predawn light, I saw a flock of avocets, which I think of as a shorebird, an occupant of ocean shores. But what luck! Here is one part of the flock, cropped to focus your attention on what I think is compelling.

Here is the link to another motion blur experiment, this time of a single mallard.
