So that is the shot we've been waiting for! I tried some in-flights over the weekend but small birds such as those are a next step for me. It'll take me a long time before I come up with something decent.
You've got an interesting capture here. You can clearly see the action and even a 1/4000th of a second didn't completely freeze this bird. Great shot.

Hello Asbed. Nicely captured cardinal in flight. Good sharpness around the head against the natural background which IMO is the right decision on your part. Thanks for sharing this and best regards. Jusni

Bellissima immagine nonostante tutte le difficoltà di cattura, molto bella la composizione con l'uccello diretto verso il punto di ripresa che esalta l'effetto tridimensionale. Complimenti. Complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Finally we get to see your Lady. And a lovely lady she is. I love the position of the wings! Nice colors and a strange expression on her face and a nice sparkle in her eye. I think the trees add a lot to this picture and she is very well framed by them.

I missed this picture last night and I am glad I have caught it today.
You have done extremely well on what is one of the hardest shots to capture.
Small birds move so very quickly so you either need good luck or a plan and patience.
The background doesnt really matter at all about being blurred..You can plan the bg when you have planned the capturing tecnique...Take it from me it is a long slow process!!
All that said it is a great capture and one to be proud of..(I would be)

It is really rare picture. You have frozen the bird perfectly. Great exposure parameters, you are right. Especially I like eye-contact between bird and you. I also like exposure of the image despite the contrast subject. Bravo and TFS.

A very nice shot of this beautiful cardinal.
Well captured in flight.The head on pose is well captured.
The colours are vibrant and really stand out.

Well done! This is a great shot of the female Northern Cardinal in flight and it is coming straight at you! You must have been very quick! Great focus on the eye and fine details and colours. I like the bit of the tail showing and the natural background.
Many thanks, Ulla
