Salut Pierre, avec le D300 le bruit digital est vraiment très bas alors tu peux te permettre de monter les ISO, 400, 600, 800. De cette façon il n'y aurait pas eu ce flou de bouger, 1/50 c'est limite. Sujet trop centré et décor un peu terne. On lâche pas! :-)

Hi Pierre. A good shot of this unusual coloured dove. The eye is well seen. I am sure these bird photos will gradually improve as you get used to the 400mm. TFS. Murray.
