Hello friends, today I was at a
pointing dog (hunting dog) activity,
this Chukar Partridge it is a farm bird,
I want to say by that, that it is not
a wild bird, it is a farm Partridge
that we (people of pointing dogs)
use it for pointing dogs activities.

« A native of southern Eurasia,
the Chukar was introduced into the
United States from Pakistan to be
a game bird. It lives in arid,
rocky terrain across the western
United States and southern Canada. »

Excellent flying posture of this Chukar frozen in mid-flight through your camera settings, Asbed.
The trees in the foreground make this frame authentic and beautiful.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Asbed,

Doesn't look like a chukar, but you captured the fast flying bird with great skill. Not an easy task but the high SS did the trick.

Hello Asbed,
A very fast flying bird and one not easily photographed while inflight. You did a terrific job of capturing this particular bird and keeping it in tac sharp focus. Well done!!

Bonjour Asbed,

L'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la Perdrix choukar en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hi Asbed.
The tops of the trees as well as small clouds in the sky are nice decoration for wonderful image of a bird in-flight. Wingspread is very impressive (timing is really perfect) and I also like exposure and details of the bird. Warm regards and TFS.
