[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There is a large colony of Black-winged Stilts at the mouth of Oued Sous.
At every passing gull all the males are flying and chasing away the predator, a good occasion for photographing flying Stilts.

Hallo Tom
A super image with details beautifully captured. The colours are brilliant and I agree with Mircea that it is one of the best I have also seen. Every little detail of this bird in flight displays beautifully against the blue sky as background, but especially the red eye stands out so clearly. Thanks for sharing a great image. Best regards.

Superior work using a good, fast eye.... Steady hands and the best of gear and glass!

Hi Tom,
This is a remarkable bird in flight, the focus and details of this Stilt are near perfect. This is the most difficult shot in the bizz, great timing.

Hello Tom
Awesome crisp details, well composed and great timing. Well done!

Amazing capture of one of my favorite birds. The details, colors and focus are perfect.
Wonderful catch in flight of a splendid bird.

Bonjour Tom,

L'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage, La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'Échasse blanche en vol. L'image est claire et nette. La qualité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Excellent timing of capture. I really like the angle of shot.
