gif ... Persistence Paid Off!

These tiny birds are awfully crafty! I could see her on a twig across the yard...she'd watch me as I sat with my camera on the tripod. She came a couple times and stayed behind the bottle. When I finally turned my back on her and drank some coffee, she swooped over and I was at the ready! Kind of like playing with the grandkids! I got what I wanted this time, and next time I go out without the camera, she'll be all over me!

Take a series of photos of YOUR pet and make a gif image to post here! Use the tag pets-gif
patience is persistance! If you have got the time it works! Great wee video!

another wonderful one! I have managed to download the app, can't wait for a chance to have a go! this is brilliant and I laughed as I have a bearded dragon that plays a game with me except it's stay still so long as I don't make eye contact. If I do she is off like a shot! I can mow right up to beside her so long as I don't look at her directly :)

@koalagardens Oh that's funny! I'd love to see the inner workings of their minds! This little bugger taunts me when I think she knows I want some pictures! When I was in a wheelchair a few years back, I sat at the open back door and she'd fly right up to my face, then inside to the kitchen and back out again! Another day she did that & then checked out my bouquet of flowers on the table! They're really fearless for their size! I guess they know instinctively they're faster than just about anyone else!

@louannwarren I can make minute adjustments to the speed of a gif with this program, and this is actually the slowest of the three! This IS about the speed she flies as she scopes out the water. Since a lot of the community don't have them in their countries, I wanted it to look natural...
