hello friends, today i have done something
like 150 clics on small birds in-flight
and i had put them in focus only 5 times,
here is my best shot of today

from All About Birds website :


« The House Finch was originally a bird of the
western United States and Mexico. In 1940 a small
number of finches were turned loose on Long Island,
New York, after failed attempts to sell them as cage birds
(“Hollywood finches”). They quickly started breeding and
spread across almost all of the eastern United States
and southern Canada within the next 50 years.

The total House Finch population across
North America is staggering. Scientists estimate
between 267 million and 1.4 billion individuals. »

Salut Asbed,il est comme un ange,vraiment magnifique la position des ailes...excellente qualite' aussi et tres bonne nettete'!! Mes compliments et bonne soiree',Luciano

Hi Asbed,

Ha. ha ... only 5 focused than 150 pictures shot! ... obviously is not easy to achieve these spectacular pictures! ... I congratulate you for your patience, commitment and mystical friend Asbed.

This picture leaves little room for comment, is simply outstanding. Some elements of the angle of capture, allowing a certain feeling of 3D in the photographic plane. The blue sky has a very well managed, the children greatly complement the picture. I'm seeing that this time you used 1/1000s, I think that allows sierto trayecoria footprint on the wings of the bird, greatly increasing the sense of movement.

Good work, worth seeing, fun to analyze!
