[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, I could do a cropping
to this photo to have the bird closer,
but no I will leave as it was shot
because this photo has a meaning for me.

This photo of the Eastern Kingbird
flying high, very high in the sky,
was shot 2 days after the death of Ranger
my 2nd pointing dog (griffon Korthals),
I want to dedicate it to his memory that in
this very sad morning of June 14, 2012 where
he flew up very high in the sky to go there in
the paradise of grouse dogs - chiens bécassiers.

1/1600s, f/11.0, ISO1000,
50mm (35mm eq:75mm).

- Eastern Kingbird
- Tyran tritri
- Tyrannus tyrannus

from the All About Birds website

« With dark gray upperparts and
a neat white tip to the tail,
the Eastern Kingbird looks like
it’s wearing a business suit.
And this big-headed, broad-shouldered
bird does mean business—just watch
one harassing crows, Red-tailed Hawks,
Great Blue Herons, and other birds that
pass over its territory.

Eastern Kingbirds often perch on wires
in open areas and either sally out for
flying insects or flutter slowly over
the tops of grasses. They spend winters
in South American forests, where they
eat mainly fruit.»

Sorry to hear about your dog's death... in a way the image is symbolic. tfs.

Hi Asbed, The bird is well seen against blue sky. A beautiful dedication to your 2nd pointing dog. TFS, JC

Hi Asbed
the idea is good but there are two problems
firts your signature is about the same size as the main subject which is disturbing here, second the centered composition is boring
so it's not a matter of cropping but putting the bird somewhere in the left upper third

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful picture of this flying bird.Blue sky with cotton like cloud in BG is really splendid.Well captured.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

lonely fly! superb composition.
best wishes.
