Sparrow closeup

When not having other subjects, you can always train your response time with house sparrows!

These little birds are quite hard to catch mid-air, but you always get another chance!

Great shot with nice pov and very well composed. Regards, Carme.

Bonjour Dan,bien vu ,juste au bon moment lorsqu'il attrape sa proie.Bravo


Hi Dam,
Even at 1/2000 and wings couldn't get frozen... Amazing birds! But details on the moth, sparrow's head.. are sharp and good!
And you are right... when I can and dare take pictures on birds, I guess sparrows will be my first subject!
By the way, satisfied with 100-400 lens? Just looking for a tele-zoom to catch birds but not decided yet... TFS, Marta

Hi Dan,
This is a great in flight capture!
I like so much the timing and action frozen here, with the excellent pose and wings wide open.
It's so good all the aerodynamics features caught in this bird pose.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Dan,
great timing. The sparrow is nicely captured with lunch in beak. Nice and clear photo,
