Hi all,

This is the Red-wattled Lapwing in flight shot today morning .. the murky waters of the lake provided me a good background and the my new 70-300 VR did the trick. :-) .. the lens is light and handy compared to my bigma (Sigma 50-500 ).

Your new lens was well used to get the right sharpness and BG to portray the Red-wattled Lapwing a bird that I like a lot.

Hi Goutham,
Pure art, pure ert MF! Well done!...... Very eye catching!

Hi Goutham,
long time no see, it's great to see a new post from you again.
This a fine in-flight shot with great panning. The picture is a well composed with lot of space for the bird to fly in.
I also like the DOF, the bird stand out nicely from the water.
Fine work, old friend.

Best Regards

Thanks for you kind words of my previous post.
I had plans to be much more active now when I'm wintering in Cyprus
but my internet connection is not the best.:-(

Hi Goutham.
What a wonderful in-flight picture. I am amazed a lot. Brilliant pictured moment, pose of the bird, contact of the bird's wing to the water surface, precise DOF. I also like refined exposure and reproduction of the bird colouration, their dark and light colour shades. Bravo.

Hello Goutham,
What a beautiful image!!!!!
