[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My first and not so good try of a flying tit.
the sitting ones were "boring" after the last 2 weeks
so i started to capture them coming or going.
They are so fast, that about from 1 out of 10 pics
has a bird on it.
i tried 1/1250, 1/1600 and this here is with 1/2000
and still not too sharp. the background is branches
from the tree and a little disturbing,
but i like the wingfeathers and how it is carrying
away a peanut.

Hi Thorsten,
genial, gerade zum richtigen Zeitpunkt.
So emsig zupfen diese Meisen immer an den Nüssen herum um dann ganz stolz mit einer davonzuflattern und sie genüßlich in Deckung zu verspeisen - wie bei mir im Garten - wunderschöner "Schuß", vielen Dank

Hi Thorsten,
Original scene you photographed here. In fact this is a very common situation, but I never seen such a great capure of the action. Interesting wing-spread of the bird. The unsharpness is not disturbing me at all. Compliments Thorsten.
Regards, Ruud

Privet Thorsten.
Interesting picture of a flying bird. It is not necessary to try that all bird was sharp - she flies also wings should be greased. It does a photo dynamical.
