Hello friends, after photos of the
Great Gray Owl (I still have a lot
on my archives to be published)
return to the small birds in-flight.
This Black-capped Chickadee it is
becoming my photo #1001 on TN !

Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS
1/250s f/5.6 ISO100
12.6mm (35mm eq:70mm)

from Birds of Nova Scotia website

« This bird's common call proclaims
its identity: chik-a-dee-dee. It has
another call, heard more frequently
in spring, a sweet two-toned whistle,
fiee-bee, given slowly and deliberately
on a descending scale. This note should
not be mistaken for that of a Phoebe,
which does not whistle but merely utters
fee-be explosively, with a strong accent
on the first syllable. »

Hello Asbed,
A fine in-flight capture!
I like the POV and the way the light shines through the outspread wings and tail of this Black-capped Chickadee. The blurred bare birch branches give it movement and the colours and clarity are great.
Thanks and best regards,

Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely in-flight bird, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Asbed,not the top of details but a very nice capture,i like the transparencies of tail and wings,perfect exposure! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Very poetic Asbed. Good form and a wonderful composition. I love the light and the soft colours. Nicely framed and the DOF works well here. Trevor

Hi Asbed,

Need I tell you to "step up your ISO" for the perfect inflight capture!! 8-) He is fanned out so lovely.

Sarebbe stata un’eccellente foto se avresti aumentato ISO,ma non tutte le foto riescono perfette,va bene ugualmente.
Ciao Marco.
Grazie della condivisione.

Hi Asbed
You caught everything fanned out with good light. Good tracking with the camera to get that much detail at 1/250, good job
