Hello friends, the Black-capped Chickadee
in its wonderful flight pose. For the
framing I wanted to crop leaving less
space at the left side, but if you
see well the focus on the bird's head
it is not 100% successful, with cropping
the bird will enlarge and the not
successful focus on its head will
be more in evidence. It is the reason
why I preferred to leave it like this.

Black-capped chickadees a non-migratory.
They live in pairs during the spring and summer.
In the fall and winter, they live in small flocks
of six to ten individuals. These flocks are very
territorial and will chase intruders away.

The black-capped chickadee lives in mixed
deciduous and coniferous forests. In winter it
can be found in residential areas with trees.

Wings like an angel Asbed. You amaze me with your good timing. I like the soft colours in this and the lighting is consistant. The ISO is a bit low I'm guessing though if you kept your shutter speed down. Still, a great layout shot. TFS Trevor

Hello Asbed.
Nice wing spread and details with the approaching bird and the leafless tree creates fine perspective.

Hi Asbed,

Have a nice week,

Very nice Asbed!
I like the POV and the composition with the BG branches. Ther wing and tail spread is great and most of the Chickadee is sharp against the blue sky.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hi Asbed
He has everything fanned out, neat image. To bad about the head because you nailed the body and tail feathers for sharpness. I like how the light catches him. Good POV and composition.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hello Asbed,
The warm effect of the wings with its lovely sharp pattern against the blue is remarkable.
TFS and my regards,

with best wishes.
