lovely capture of the bird in flight, well composed shot, excellent pov, this kind of shot is a difficult one and you did it with perfection,
tfs & regards
Woow! Can't imagine how you managed to get close enough and have the bird nearly paralel to the lens! Anyhow a perfect shot indeed, with the peanut in it's mouth as a great detail :) By the way, I was wondering if you feeded the bird to attract him and predict it's flight ?
Perfect work! Mike

Amazing in-flight shot, everything is pin sharp and on a great contrasting background. Great shot with your macro lens :)
Je suis tout à fait de l'avis de Patt : c'est extraordinaire de netteté pour un oiseau en mouvement. Bravo !

Nice shot. Great sharpness! Beautiful colours. I would not have cropped the same way, but perhaps it was not possible to do otherwise.

Great in flight shot of a Blue Jay requiring great timing and focusing.
The lighting, sharpness and bokeh are superb. Must have been a sunny November day when you took this, in order to be able to use such a high shutter speed.
Well done and thanks,
Best wishes, Ivan
Nice shot of the blue jay,
This birds seems to be famous right now,
But it being a part of nature, we never tire of seeing them.

It is fantastic. I like macro lens too and I like Nikon D50 but how to get such pictures I don't know. All is simply outstanding and first of all razor sharpness and terrific details of the bird. My congratulations. I am waiting next shots from you. It would be interesting details of shooting technique.
amazing capture, TFS Ori

una captura supersónica...
excelente foco y color,
This is one outstanding in-flight capture my friend!
The details here are impeccably clear and the action is very well frozen. You exposure paramentrs on your camera are great, too!
It's incredible that you managed to get so close that you ised a macro lens...wow! How did you do it?
Also, this is indeed a great way to practice and keep sharp for the next series of in-flight dragonflies :)
A splendid shot, with lovely colors and a very beautiful contrasting BG.
Just for my curiosity, i made a workshop with a different compo...hope you don't mind :)
Anyway, it's an outstanding work!
Bravo and TFS
PS: Sorry for the late workshop...my internet was down all afternoon and evening :((
What can I say ? It's perfect ! Well done Kevin on this in-flight Jay ! I'll have to try this sometimes :-) Background, light, sharpness exposure. All is top notch, thanks my friend. That's you who will give advice to me !
