Hello friends

I was in A (aperture) mode, ISO400.
fully zoomed 50mm (35mm eq:75mm)
with 75% of cropping to have it closer.

from the All About Birds website

« A fairly numerous and widespread species,
there are 14 recognized races of
Hairy Woodpecker in North America.
These are distinguished by

color of pale areas
amount of white on wing

Hairy Woodpeckers find their food by
feeling the vibrations made by insects
moving about in the wood. They also can
hear the insects munch on the wood! »

Great! To get the whole picture of the flying aviaries we must use several images taken from different angles, which is what this is and why it is so important. No just a pretty profile but a good look at hind quarters actions inflight. Great lesson plan!

Hello Asbed,
Fine photo of this woodpecker in flight. Excellent timing and sharpness. Great composition in beautiful natural colours.

one of your specialties Asbed..good day! If I have to shoot the same scene I would probably chose a wider aperture. Your Tamron can perform superbly at f/2.8 ! Try it! ;)

Bonsoir Asbed,

Les arbres aident au cadrage de l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du pic chevelu en vol. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


nice one! WOOT WOOT So are they really hairy? OK now i want to see one up close and hairy still :0)

Hello Asbed
your inflight shot is always exciting as the background is lovely too. The woodpecker is sharp and clear. Exciting forest view too


Hello Asbed,
Nicely framed woodpecker giving space to fly in the frame. Lovely details and your blue sky background is always interesting.
Kind regards,

Hi Asbed.
Excellent in-flight picture. You managed to freeze the cute bird perfectly. I prefer WS where blurred BG is more attractive. My compliments and best wishes.

Another beautiful and interesting photo of a flying small bird Asbed! The timing for one more time is impressive!

Merhaba Asbed!
Karışık bir arka plana rağmen böyle bir kuşu uçarken yakalamak büyük beceri isteyen bir iş. Biraz uzak olmasına rağmen detaylar oldukça iyi. Başarılı bir paylaşım. Tebrikler...


Sorprendente de nuevo... es lo mismo que hacías antes pero con una buena máquina... espectacular-
Buen fondo y naturalidad en los colores.
Saludos Asbed: Josep Ignasi.
