Hello friends,
the Black-capped Chickadee in-flight
from the feeder to the tree, from my
experience i have, shooting in-flight
from the feeder to the tree is more
difficult than shooting in-flight
from the tree to the feeder.

1/4000s f/8.0 ISO1000
fully zoomed, 50mm (35mm eq:75mm)
75% of cropping from the original image.

from the All About Birds website

« Chickadees may be found in any
habitat that has trees or woody shrubs,
from forests and woodlots to residential
neighborhoods and parks, and sometimes
weedy fields and cattail marshes. They
frequently nest in birch or alder trees. »

Hi Asbed. A good underbelly shot of this Black-Capped Chickadee. It's an original look at one. I see here that his legs are tucked in to fly. A very good POV Asbed. Good colours and focus. Your DOF is good as well and shows off the trees just right. TFS Trevor

Hello Asbed,

Well done.
Have a good week.

Hi Asbed,

Hi Asbed
I missed that one while away
Great stuff here

Bonsoir Asbed,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du mésange à tête noire. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
