[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, this photo was shot
yesterday at -25°C and -38°C with
the wind factor temperatures.

The focus on the bird is missed,
but it gives a beautiful motion effect
and to show how fast are the Chickadees.

Photo shot with my tough camera
1/320s f/5.0 ISO100
11.01mm (35mm eq:61mm)

from the All About Birds website

« A bird almost universally considered
“cute” thanks to its oversized round head,
tiny body, and curiosity about everything,
including humans. The chickadee’s black cap
and bib; white cheeks; gray back, wings,
and tail; and whitish underside with buffy
sides are distinctive. Its habit of investigating
people and everything else in its home territory,
and quickness to discover bird feeders, make it
one of the first birds most people learn. »

even though the photograph is not pointing the bird in clear frame. i love the speeding bird in wonderful background. tfs

Ciao Asbed, brrrr - 38, very cold capture, sure focus is missed but lovely dinamyc effect, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
When watching not using zoom,it reflects a speedy bird.Using Zoom little bit hazy.But I want to see it in different view as a "Symbol Of Motion".Now it's perfect with beautiful background with naked tree.Well done friend.Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,

Hi Asbed,
First of all I truly hope you survive this extreme frost! :-) About this pic: I absolutely love your unmistakable style and a lot of your photos on TN are not only unique but pleasant also. Unfortunately, at least in my opinion, this isn't the case here. Lights and colors are good, but the whole image is blurred, no focal point, look of the viewer goes nowhere on the pic. You wrote "the focus on the bird is missed, but it gives a beautiful motion effect" - this should work for example with sharp background and blurred bird. But not this way. The image taken in the same photographic style I commented a few hours ago is superb - this one isn't. You placed the bird well, colors and lights are nice but that's all here.
I hope you don't mind I told my opinion. Best of luck to you for future in-flight captions. Friendly regards, László

Hello Asbed,
Very well captured of the motion in that extreme cold.
My regards,

Hello Asbed,
