Hi Paul. You have taken a fine inflight close up of this Pied flycatcher. Which you have taken with fine detail and natural colours.Good use ofthe light. You took this just at the right time. Stands out well from the coloured BG.
well done TFS.

Ondanks de stevige crop toch nog goed van kwaliteit. Prachtige actie foto. Uitstekende details en mooie natuurlijke kleuren tegen de donkere achtergrond. Goede compositie.

yup, this definitely has a wow!-effect! :-) excellent inflight-shot - i almost fear that the nice bird will be
flying against my monitor-glass from the back.*splat!* it looks so lively and in motion. the light is terrific and the pose
of course especially the position of the legs. superb job & best wishes, thor.

Magnificent capture, with a superb approach angle and a good appreciation of the bird. Brightness allows excellent details. It is incredible that 1/640 has yielded a result as good. It'sa great job, very talented indeed. The cut has gone excellent, making this a very unique photo.
Congratulations & TFS

A superb capture in my opinion, Focus, exposure etc are all spot on,
I really like the wings swept back showing the details of the body with exceptional detail.
All the Best

Great in-flight picture at so attractive POV. You have frozen this small beauty perfectly. With amazing sharpness and details. BG is also great (you have brilliant lens). Bravo and kind regards.

Pose of flycatcher like humming-bird. Against smooth BG the bird look in this light very mysteriously.

A superb, well timed capture of a female Spotted flycatcher putting out the landing gear!
I am impressed with the sharpness at such a low aperture caught at a minimum shutterspeed. Excellent BG and lighting.
This species seems to be getting rarer.
Thanks and best regards,

Hey, Paul! Didn't know I was missing out on your shots at all...
Need to catch up!
I love the 'motion blur' of the wings while the hear and body are so sharp...
Very well done!
