These are some critters in the back garden that got a surprise & did a runner 😂 The last shot is a surprised sea gull avoiding a mid air collision with a raven, hence the abrupt direction change in flight!
I'm a Royal Navy Veteran from Scotland and love to get out and about with my wife, susantbraithwaite.com, on our Kalkhoff e-bikes. My faithful camera, Snappy, and the ever-present Lensy (lensball) are always along for the ride to capture the beauty of Scotland 🏴. Join me as I share photos from our travels, how Lensy views the world & pretty much anything shiny ✨

Your captures all do scream, Surprise!
My favourite is the tail dashing off.
Thanks so much 😊
What a fab capture of the change in direction of the bird. A perfect surprise.
I don’t know who was more surprised, I was tracking him with my zoom lens when the raven came out of no-where; all three of us got a bit of a shock 😂
Serendipitous moments. It is a fantastic memory and story for you.
