I admire your determination and courage to get this shot, and glad that it was used in Birding World.
I hope that your recovery is still progressing well.
A first time for me to see one of these even if it is on TB.
A nice pov and good detail are seen despite your poor conditions for photography. I like the pose and head and eye contact, showing the colours on the head well.
Thanks for sharing, and best wishes,

Interesting story about the capture of this visitor from America, Ivan. Nature does have wonders in its store for us.
The picture is pretty good, considering you had to contend with low light.
Taxing yourself in adverse health conditions was worth it.
Hope you have recovered fully after the surgery.

Voilà qui est vraiment étonnant. Il semble que tu aies été à la bonne place au bon moment! Un espèce d'hirondelle que je ne connaissais pas du tout. Une histoire triste, mais ce sont les lois de la nature aussi.
Un grand merci pour ce posting très intéressant.

I love the in-flight shot in the WS where also
there is no noise like the photo here but noise
because of the heavy cropping, the story finish
sad for this small bird but at least you have
captured him in photo and have souvenir of him,
the pose of this American in Sweden is beautiful
and the Swedish light in the photo is very beautiful, TFS

Hello Ivan,it`s always pleasing to be able to witness a rare visitor and you have managed to capture a fine photograph,it`s a pity about the birds sad ending, but I guess that`s Nature for you.
