Hello friends, this is the
second photo of the sequence of my
previous posting, after the take-off
that woodcock (see previous photo)
turned to the right side of the image
an then fly-up trough trees and branches.

1/2500s f/5.6 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Wouldn’t it be useful to have eyes in the back
of your head? American Woodcocks come close—their
large eyes are positioned high and near the back
of their skull. This arrangement lets them keep
watch for danger in the sky while they have
their heads down probing in the soil for food. »

Ciao Asbed, difficult capture of lovely in-flight woodcock, perfect focus, fine details, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my frend, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
I don't know how this bird was flying through branches and also don't know how you focused on subject!
Like BG light and branches.Well captured.Good sharpness and natural colour.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

Hello Asbed,
Great pic. Photographer is incredibly reflexes to capture the focus of a bird in the bush.

That is a very difficult capture, Asbed.
Still you have managed the flight posture of the Woodcock admirably well despite so many branches around it.
Thanks and regards.

Despite the obstacles you have kept your subject well focused, indeed.
Thanks for sharing your very special feat!!!
You have been a dedicated member of TN.

Hello Asbed,

Hope you are well. Thanks for your support brother. I wonder how you were able to take this shot of this colourful woodcok through such a tangle of branches and trunks!And getting a decent focus while the bird is in-flight is another challenge which you have won here.I think here one must appreciate your experience and I do surely appreciate it and thank you for sharing a lovely shot, take care,

warm regards/Abid

Bonjour Asbed,
Un exercice qui me paraît difficile compte tenu de la végétation et de la réactivité du sujet !!!
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
