Le flou des ailes indique le mouvement. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleur de la bécasse d'Amérique en vol. la bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Salut Asbed,finalement tu est revenu,j'avais nostalgie de tes photos abstractes comme celle-ci,la nettete' n'est pas au top mais orjamais on connais ton style tres originale et j'aime ca! Mes compliments et belle Dimanche,Luciano
Nice to see a post from you once again. I see you are hunting the elusive Woodcock again. I believe I flushed one this past fall while out walking the woods behind the house. It was already dark and this bird took off from the ground in front of me. It was a rather wet area of the field and it headed straight up and away.
For as quick as they take off you still managed to get a pretty decent shot of this particular fellow before he left the area for higher ground

Nice to see a new photo with your characteristic technique Asbed! Interesting photo with perfect timing, very good composition and wonderful colors. The movement effect is fantastic.

Hi Asbed. Nice to see you back. I see you managed to get a Woodcock in flight. With the long beak, you would think this bird is a piper bird on the shore. It looks like some of the wing is transparent. It must help him go unseen. Very nice capture with the wingspread. TFS Trevor

Once again your fine timing and panning has given a good result. The Woodcock is well seen with the raised wing position that shows the warm tints of the underside of the body plumage against the autumnal BG.
Thanks and enjoy your Sunday.

Ciao Asbed, nice see you again on TN after a long time, nice see again your in-flight birds, great panning in a fascinating autumnal ambientation, fantastic warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
It is great to see a posting from you once again. I did not even have to open the thumbnail to recognise a photo in the true CelticRanger's style of presentation. The long bill and the colours of the Woodcock's tailpiece is seen clearly in spite of the movement in the image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Très contente que tu sois de retour! Avec une de tes images tyypiques montrant cet oiseau si particulier juste en plein vol. Tu étais en route avec ton chien qui semble être un parfait explorateur des bois! cela doit êter passionnant de se promener dans les bois et faire ce genre de découvertes.

well placed and very fast shot by you to give the view of this flying bird.
The blurry composition to show the swift and fast motion.
