Very good first post, Thorsten.
This is not an easy one to take ut you manage well.
Good flight-in with nice colours and details.
Its little centred, more space to the right and less to the left so the bird have space to fly in, otherwise it's a nice picture. Well done.
Welcome to TN.

Hi Thorsten
Great first TN shot. Good timing and composied.
Well done my friend.


Sen some photos now. You have been lazy or work to much. or send some from your archives my friend we are vaiting.......

Hi Thorsten,
This is very impressive photo.
I know how hard it is to catch a bird during flight. The wings look so big. It is a little blurry. I guess you could use ISO 400 and a bigger diaphragm. But I know that it is not possible to think about everything. Since birds are fast and require immediate reaction. This is a very beautiful bird. It is one of the relatively common birds in Israel that I still didn't have the chance to take a picture of them.
