amazing capture fantastic focus great background wonderful colors except i think there's a bit of a green cast. look at the fence in the back it seems greener than wood would normally look
Well your perseverance paid off! I suppose you are using high burst on that camera. It really helps in situations like that. Fortunately taking a hundred digital shots costs no more than taking one or two. I tried a workshop to remove the yellow cast that Tom mentioned.

WOW! Your persistence paid off in a one-in-a-lifetime shot. This is magnificent! I have never seen the focus and DOF so perfect for an in-flight photo and it could not happen with a better subject than this beautiful bluebird. Incredible colors and perfect wing position with just the right amount of wing blurring for this motion shot. The detail on eye and feet is stunning. Congratulations!

A shot like this is worth all the ages of waiting Liezel.
Great capture with superb sharpness and clarity.
What I also like very much in this image is the movement in the wings.
Gives a wonderful scence of action.
You also might consider to thank your camera wich produces such high class performance on ISO 3200.
Just few years ago it was impossible to produce such perfect shots without using atleast 2 or 3 flashunits.
Excellent work. Thanks for sharing.
Warm regards and have a nice sunday, Harry

great picture of this @#[email protected]# bluebird, surely a subspecies which I don't know ;-)
Just a few years ago this would have become a very expensive shot with films!
Amazing result with perfect sharpnes of the whole body and head. No noise despite very high Iso ratings
