You are really proving yourself as a top-class in-flight bird photographer!
This is another stunning shot!
The clarity is impeccable and the image is razor-sharp.
Superb pose and a great composition.
Perfect focusing and a great DOF.
Very, very well done Kevin.
Slightly shaking legs or not, this is a great capture! Amazing that you had enough light to allow you a 4000th at ISO 200! Must be the snow! Technically superb, caught at a fine moment to produce this superb pose in this excellent composition.
Well done my friend and thanks!

Wow, this is a stunning image, though you are being modest in your note, Kevin! Taking the picture of a small bird in flight and that too from your perspective is not an easy task at all and you have succeeded in doing so very well.
The shape formed by the bird's open wings is just beautiful and the details as well as the colours are perfect.
Thanks for sharing the image and warm regards.

They are small indeed; it is difficult to capture them when they are perched, let alone in flight!

What a wonderful in-flight capture of the Chickadee. The focus is brilliant and those wings look sooo beautiful. Great sharpness, beautiful background colour and a very well-timed and lovely composition.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
Hi Kevin, the master of flight! Your patience pays, look at the wonderful picture of the chickadee. I love what you do, it helps us see what the eye don't catch. The flight of the birds fascinate me and to see them in movement is great.
Your photo is sharp and clear, the colours are great and most of all, the background is blurred and soft to leave out the chickadee. You managed to get a very slight movement in the wings which is real nice. Congratulation and thanks to you!

Great action captured. DOF, POV, timing are very good. I like the exposure and evenly distribution of colors.
- JoseMiguel (5658)
- [2007-12-14 8:26]
You did it again.
The timing to get this shot done properly is admirable.
I don't know how you can get that amazing high shutter speed to froze the movement. But the result is just great.
The bird is perfect lighted an the DOF suits properly for the subject.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

Great focusing,composition and BG,
Welldone my friend.
You can't imagine the number of times I have tried to do such a picture!!! I never have enough light to choose the good shutter speed. They are ones of the fastest birds I know and this is a real challenge that you accomplished perfectly! This is a very good image, a beauty to look at. Congratulations!

You create wonders with your excellent macro lens. I am impressed so much. I understand when it turns out very well once time but you proof your skill at in-fly bird shooting again and again. Bravo, my friend. Next outstanding in every respect shot. My congratulations.
Sometimes, may be, you will share your technique of creation of such masterpieces. My best wishes.

Firstly, a big thank you for your kind words on my last post and on the Guestbook from my website. I really appreciate them, my friend!
I see you are already an expert on taking these in-flights! How amazing! I'm sure all this experience will work superbly on the next years Odonatas :)
This is a splendid shot of this Chickadee!
The pose of the bird - with its wings spread - is absolutely stunning and the nice OOF BG works well to make it stand out even better.
I would say don't worry about those legs...you pulled out the maximum from the camera and that is something very few people manage to do!
Bravo and TFS
