Salut Jacqueline,je pense qu'il sois un crow moi aussi,capture parfaicte avec des excellents details et une position des ailes super! Bon WE et merci,Luciano

Dear Jacqueline,
Your bird is a rook Corvus frugilegus, which can be identified from the white skin at the base of the beak, clearly visible in your photograph. I find the composition to be a little unbalanced, with too much space below the bird in the frame. A shutter speed of at least 1/1000 sec is recommended for birds in flight to minimise motion blur.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Salut Jacqueline,
A nice capture of Corvus frugilegus ..
Very good composition and good sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Jacqueline,
Nigel told everything what I had to say! To me one of the toughest picture is to capture fast flying bird. Although I didn't post much flying bird picture. I will post soon. I always use ISO 400 or even ISO 600 to get faster shutter speed. I think in such situation f/8 is perfect because I have seen it's sharpest; moreover when we are not using any Prime lens or supper 500/600 mm zoom lens.
Thanks for sharing your experimental shot with us,
Best wishes and have a nice WE,

Ciao Jacqueline, great capture of lovely inflight crow, perfect focus and fine details, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Jacqueline

Avec un reflex tu peux sans avoir peur monter dans les ISO, exemple ici si tu aurais
photographié à ISO800 au lieu de ISO100 facilement tu aurais obtenu une vitesse
d'obturation plus rapide de 1/1000s et plus car les vitesses rapides sont nécessaires
pour les oiseaux en vol pour les figer dans leurs mouvement, mais tu as une bonne
netteté quand même ici et l'oiseau est figé dans son envol, et puis pas facile de
reproduire ou montrer des détails des plumages tout noirs surtout en vol comme ici,
c'est une bonne photographie à l'envol, TFS
