[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, this is not really a flight but this photo with these Red-winged blackbird males in aerial combat becomes my very first small bird in-flight photo with my new DSLR Nikon D500 + Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8 G as lens that I already had, other than the American Woodcock and the Northern Flicker that are bigger than the Red-winged blackbird and had already photographed in-flight with my new DSLR.

1/2500s f/5.6 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).

Hi Asbed,wonderful quality for this pic made with your new camera! A typical moment of springtime this birds battle,and you caught this moment in a wonderful sharpness despite the dark light,very well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Asbed,
Nice colors and very good shot. Difficult to catch this birds in flight.

Bonsoir Asbed,

Tu as bien capturé les oiseaux en vol. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des Carouges à épaulette. La lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


Hello Asbed,
Beautiful bird and perfect timing. Well captured them.

Hi Asbed,
Instead of in-flight, you have an in-fight capture... :-) But a beautiful one, I'd say, with perfect shutter and timing - you managed to catch the moment when one of the males just managed to win the battle, I guess. Great image. Otherwise, your lens works very well, the image is completely noise-free with ISO 1600. Valuable post, thanks!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

You did very well to capture these highly active birds - I've tried to photograph red-winged blackbirds and it is extremely difficult as they move so fast. Its always good to see a picture of birds behaving in their natural habitat in activities, and this does it very well indeed.
