Hello friends, today it is my photo
number 777 in TN and i decide to be
this lovely Lady Red-winged Blackbird
with her typical flight pose when
while flying she also sing or whistle

Here she is passing a stream from one
side to another side, one part of
the background it is digital noisy
and the bird it is not perfectly sharp

but like i already have written what
we see here as shutter speed the 1/80s
it comes from the camera, with that
little compact camera i can not choose
and for the aperture F5.3 it is because
the lens it is fully zoomed, i did not
give cropping to not loose more on
the image quality

from Hinterland Who's Who website

« These well-known birds are one
of the first signs of spring in Canada.
Their spring migration takes place
from mid-February through mid-May.

Their fall southern migration begins
as early as August. The male
red-winged blackbird returns before
the female in the spring and leaves
after the female in the fall.
They migrate in large flocks
and travel during the day. »

Hallo Asbed,
a very beautiful capture of this female blackbird in flight, perfect focusing and fantastic panning background, very good visual impact
Have a good weekend

Helo Asbed
Beautiful artistic presentation of a flying bird.

Hello Asbed,
Nice dynamic action of this Lady Blackbird in flight, great panning, very good focus on the bird and wonderful colours,
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend,
Best Regards,

regards Nasos

a wonderful image looks like an art. great panning background. thanks for sharing.

Hi Asbed,
interesting capture. Very nice natural and warm colours. It's like an artistic idea of our world.
Have a nice weekend,

La idea es buena y el fondo estupendo, aunque creo
que el motivo principal ( las aves ) quedan algo desdibujadas...
si hubieras conseguido plasmarlas el resultado hubiera sido espectacular.
Un saludo Asbed y buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Ciao Asbed, like an abstract painting, splendid light and fantastic colors, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
The male Red-winged Blackbird usually gets all the attention, but I definitely believe the little lady has some beautiful coloration all to her own. There is just something about their speckled plumage and unique patterns that really captures my eye. Nice shot!!

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful dynamic photo of this Red-winged Blackbird in flight. The bird is in nice sharpness, but most of all I like the gorgeous coloured BG.

Hi Asbed,
As art, this certainly is something impressive, but as a photo this is more a failure than a good result. The subject is not in focus and the BG is just not pleasant to look at. I do admire your persistanc to capture this fast moving objects but I don't think the result is great.

Bonjour Asbed,

Le flou de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du carouge à épaulette femelle en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


This is one super image looking like a painting my friend. You have transformed nature shots into art pieces that I like. The uniform strokes of the muted bokeh is amazing and thanks for sharing, Asbed.

Hi Asbed!
Congratulations my friend on your 777 post...a magic number :))
You show us a lovely composition for this anniversary. I like the lighting and the BG, which seems an abstract painting:)
Good details of the small bird, well placed in the image.
Well done: congratulations.
Ciao! Vanda
