Hola Mikael, excelente sensación de dinamismo y composición, muy bien enfocada, con buen color y mejor luz. El fondo perfecto, para destacar mas aún el motivo. Saludos.

Hi Mikael!

You present us a spectacular picture of this Warbler. Bird pictures often show static animals on a tree or on the ground. I like this picture very much because it's vivid, the in-flight is very well captured and makes this picture an outstanding one.

Kind regards

hi Mikael,
very impressive inflight shot! the detail and sharpness is incredible.. fantastic composition, nice bg, and incredible capture of this little guy in flight. well done!!

Very good inflight work Mikael.
The POV and comp is great. Very good detail, DOF, color, and exposed well.
You had her up as fast as she'll go I see.
I've never shuttered mine at 1/8000th yet..
Hard to believe, I know ;-}
Very well done,

Bonjour Mikael,
Incroyable photo ! la netteté est excellente, dans ce genre de situation il faut déclencher au bon moment.


Hi Mikael

What a great shot of this warbler in flight.
Pin sharp, everything is perfect.
Excellent shot.


Hej Micke
Du har frusit den lilla grabben i luften jätte bra :)
Well done with great details.

wow, spectacular inflight-shot of the pretty small bird! :-) excellently sharp and it is amazing to still see a slight motion blur on the wingtips at 1/8000. superb job & best wishes, thor.

This is just a wonderful in flight Warbler, Mikael.
'Maybe' the excellent blurred wings were generated through aperture and not shutter speed as the 1/8000 is really very short.

hello Mikael

WOW ! what a great shot and beautiful image of this Warbler in-flight,
very fine POV and DOF, very very fine framing, wonderful background,
lovely luminosity of the image, great sharpness and details of the bird,
i love that blur of the wings showing the motion of the flight,
and i love too that very very little catch-light at the eye,

TFS alot for this image


Hello Mikael,

What a great time you must have had there on that Island.
Looking at all the very beautiful bird images you've made there make me wish to go there also sometime.
This shot is another perfect example of what you're capeble of.
You're a real master of bird photography. My compliments!!!
Technically perfect shot with outstanding sharpness, exposure, composition and DOF.
Really love the movement in the wings of the bird which gives the scene a wonderful sence of action.
Very beautiful pose of the bird in flight, feather details, color tones and soft background.
Perfect work again. TFS!!!

Best regards, Harry

Hej Micke,
Superb in-flight of a glasögonsångare, caught at a good moment with excellent sharpness in fine lighting. Amazing shutterspeed but the low aperture still allowed you the sharpness.
TFS this beautiful image,

Hej Micke,
You caught this very nicely indeed! I expect it was just coming in to land while watching you carefully!! Great focus and fine sharp details. Beautiful colours too. Well done!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hi Mikael,
so you needed 1/8000 sec to catch the bird in flight. Beautiful, what a great pleasure to look at the picture. It's a species that even on TN we will not see often. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Best regards
