Marvelous photography. I struggle to capture good bird shots.Please come visit my Wordless linkup at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/04/french-corner-bakery.html
Practice, lots and lots of practice and even more patience.
I love how sharp his (her?) eye is! They are such delicate creatures. Thank you for joining us again this week for Photo Friday!
I have no idea if it's a male or female or even what type of thornbill it is. It's the first time I've ever managed to capture one in flight though.
Avian subjects are some of my favorites. :) These are great shots - perching birds are the hardest for me to photograph, with their quick little movements!
You need fast shutter speed and lots of luck!
Great photographs, especially the action shot. #AnimalTales
Thanks Ian. It's my first success on getting a small bird in flight.
What lovely captures! I only manage to take photos of birds from afar, but then again, I only have a point and shoot camera :) #animaltales.
It's had to get birds without a zoom lens.
Two really fantastic images. Superb.
It's nice of you to say so. You take truly lovely shots yourself.
Always a fantastic capture from you! #AnimalTales
Thank you :o)
Great picture! Love the detail of the open wing feathers.
I wish it had been a bit sharper. Fingers crossed for next time.
Lovely shots and I love seeing birds from around the world. Are thornbirds common birds? Thank you for adding a totally new (to me) bird to #AnimalTales
Yes they're everywhere here, but it's hard to tell them apart from lots of other small brown birds unless you can get a photo to see the details. (well for me it is) I do feel like I was cheating a bit linking this up to Animal Tales this week, I thought I had an animal post to share but then I couldn't find it..
The Mother says - Fab photography. These birds in flight look amazing. #animaltales
Beautiful photography - so crisp and clean I almost feel the feathers!Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-bubble-man.html
Thanks so much!
Amazing capture! I love the first photo because of the movement and I can see the detail on his wings. #wwwblp
I was quite surprised when the wings weren't a complete blur, the shot was in the shadows and I wasn't game to increase the shutter speed any more then that.
