Hello friends, not as good as i would
love to see but even that i decide
to keep and post this photo

If the bird is more at the left side
of the image than the right side
it is because the shutter lag
of my little compact camera

It is my only 2nd Baltimore Oriole
in-flight photo, the last time
it was in may 2009 and it was
my best in-flight photo

from the All About Birds website

« With its brilliant orange and
black plumage, the Baltimore Oriole's
arrival is eagerly awaited by birders
each spring migration. Its preference
for open areas with tall trees has made
it a common inhabitant of parks
and suburban areas. »

Sensación grande de dinamismo por ese conseguido fondo.
El ave casi la congelaste. Preciosos colores.

Hello Asbed Friend!
For some time I have not seen a picture so full of movement as this! ... Congratulations ... You are still a master of visual dynamics!
Indeed, this bird has a fantastic color!
Weel done!
Regards, TFS

Forget about the camera settings, the grain on the image, the rule of third or the space in front of the bird ... we have a fine piece of work here in my opinion in front of us here...and I love it, friend Asbed!!!Bravo, such an inspirational movement and simplicity. With some Photoshop filters this image easily can be transformed and printed into a magnificent canvas for a modern house! A masterpiece indeed! Just gave a look the workshop please!

very sensitive shot with great perfection. This shot is very difficult to manipulate or repeat because you have captured background with real moving patterns.

Hi Asbed,
Another capture of flying bird, great panning, very good movement scene and the bird is beautiful colours!
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day,
Best Regards,

Thanks for sharing,

Ciao Asbed, beautiful panning, great inflight capture with splendid natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres aident au cadrage de l'oiseau. Le flou de l'arrière-plan indique le mouvement. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'oriole de Baltimore en vol. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Il y a une bonne variété d'oiseau à ce parc qui est situé à Laval. Bonne journée.

Hello Asbed,
A nice in-flight shot of one of my favorite birds to view during the spring and summer months here in Ohio. I love the bright orange and black colors that the males have, but the females are also very attractive. TFS.

Hallo Asbed,
a great capture of the Baltimore Oriole in flight, good panning and splendid colours, a very beautiful dynamic composition
Best regards
