[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Grateful for the friendships made, beauty revealed and helpful advice throughout these years. Prayers sent to you all for a very healthy and prosperous New year. Looking forward to all the new adventures to be revealed here in 2014

This little Turn was happily feasting at a wetland area visited, almost impossible to catch him catching his feast, however what we did glimpse was nothing but miraculous! Sharing with you this capture during a cloudy day.

Hello Brenda,
Reminds me of angel wings, especially with the way they are outlined in a bit of glow. Not sure how you managed that, but I like it.
Your cute little turn resembles a tiny Sparrow Hawk as it hovers intently overhead just before dropping down on it's unsuspecting prey.
"Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year" to you and your family.
God Bless,

Hi Brenda.
I donīt know what kind of job you have done with the pic, but seems that the bird is flying to a spot of light. compliments!
Left wing seems a little out of focus, but with such a bird.. who cares? :) TFS!

Hi Friend,

Happy Christmas.


Ciao Brenda, great capture of lovely tern in fantastic pose, fine details, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, Merry Christmas Silvio

Hi Brenda,
I would advise to post the original pic instead, as the white halo around the bird is disturbing.
Best regards,

Wish you "Merry Christmas" Brenda,
Lovely in-flight catch.

Hello Brenda,
Beautiful capture and "HALO" around the Turn. Excellent presentation as we near 2014 showing us that there is light ahead. Well done my friend and every thing of the best for 2014.
Best regards,

Hello Brenda

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year also for you and your family.

The halo over the bird in-flight it is giving a plus to the photo
by a magical touch, the light contributing to that effect,
great focus, sharpness, and details, TFS
