[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A capture of last week,just a try out of the abilities of the new camera on flying birds,the bird was on quite a distance and the original is cropped quite a lot,but I think the results are still fair,the BG is not sky as maybe you will presume,but water of a small lake,hope you like this wagtail in flight,

thanks for your time and untill the next one.

Hallo Paul,
Mooie foto van deze Witte Kwikstaart in vlucht. Niet bepaald gemakkelijk om te nemen, want hun vlucht is erg onvoorspelbaar. De scherpte en details zijn prachtig. Ik denk dat je 'een dijk' van een camera hebt gekocht. Uitstekende compositie met zo veel ruimte onder in de foto.
Goed weekend,

what an amazing inflight-shot! :-) knowing how fast they fly, this is really a superb capture. the sharpness is still very good
and i love the details on the opened wings. your new cam seems to be a great buy. best wishes & take care, thor.

erg gaaf hoor, ook mooi geplaatst op het vlak. Ik weet hoe moeilijk het is om deze rakkers op de sensor te zetten.

Hi Paul,

You are certainly getting some good shots with your new camera, I like the pose of the bird, great focus and dof. The background although grey seems to project the bird forward.

Regards, Bill
