[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shot this picture last Sunday at La Salle Parc in Burlington. While I took pictures with my little Fuji S3100 the big league rolled in. I'm not sure what they focused on but I thought this was on the humorous side, all the birds in front of them and they looking the other way.

damn paparazzi! *g*
this is a funny shot, i like it, sky!
too bad you didn´t see what they wanted
to capture, looks interesting though,
especially the guy in the middle,
he is so well equipped.
and the geese and swans just don´t care.
well observed & captured,

Hi Sky,

Veryfunny shot,I suppose they saw a black swan,


Hallo Sky,
ich nehme an, daß diese Paparazzis einem VIP-Brautpaar aufgelauert haben. Soviel mir bekannt kann man sich im La Salle Parc trauen lassen. ;-)
Du hast die Situation für diesen Schuß hervorragend erfaßt und sehr gut umgesetzt. Danke für dieses humoristische Foto. Ich bin nur verblüfft wie ruhig sie die Gänse verhalten. Bei uns kommst Du garantiert nicht näher als 100 m heran.

Hello Sky!
Lovely capture,very crowded place.I think you were at the right point.Funny moment,nice details and well composed.

Hi Sky,

You should have asked questions, they would be pleased to answer what they were spotting.
Hmm, looks to be a good spot, where abouts? I will be down in Brampton on the 31st. So, i'mm looking for some nice spots.

Excellent shot and well done on the composition. Did you eventually move in on the Dominent Swan displaying?


Maybe you missed the real thing, Sky! :)
Yes, it's a funny shot. The guys seem to be terribly focused on something except those lovely ducks in front of them.
Good snapshot.

Hahaha ! Well done Sky, one of the best humorous shot I've seen here. If it was not so cold I would have tought that Angelina Jolie was sunbathing there...:-)

Thanks, you made me laugh.

Hello Sky, Really funny shot in fact. Did you find what they were looking for... TFS Donald

Perfect POV, Sky!
Funny to see that heavily equipped armada,
caught in action by a keen lady with a light weapon.
How lucky we are. One hundred years ago they would have used rifles.
Sehr amüsante Szene. Solche Anekdoten mag ich!
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,

Bonjour Sky
Belle prise de vue que ces photograpges avec leur gros objectif qui regardait tous vers le même endroit. peut-tu nous dire c'est quoi qu'ils regardaient et que tous ces cygnes qui les regardent.
Bravo et passe un bon week end.....JP

Hi Sky,

Hello Sky,
This was in your featured photos on your intro page. I just had to comment on this, it's so funny :-) What's also funny is the guy in the bright blue clothes with the little bit of camouflage tape wrapped around his lens hood. I think they'll see him :-) Well seen and captured.

Hello Sky,
A bit funny, jejejeje!
Of course they cannot shoot birds 2 m away, they have to aim at somthing in a distance to get some payback from equipment investment!
