Hello friends, less perfect than
my previous photo, the body and
the head are not perfectly focused
but we have to take in consideration
that yesterday's bird was a large one
so better to take in focus and this
bird it is very very small and fast

Please take in consideration that for
this little camera this is a good photo

from the All About Birds website

« A common and noisy inhabitant
of cattail marshes, the Marsh Wren
sings all day and throughout the night.

Eastern and western populations of
the Marsh Wren show slight differences
in appearance, but large differences in song.
In general, western birds are paler and drabber,
and sing less musical songs. The differences may
mean that the two forms are separate species. »

good timing, but have no great sharpness. wonderful attempt. thanks for sharing.

Hi Asbed,

Well my good friend Asbed a sterling effort and take 10/10 for that, yes its difficult with a small frame camera and not easy to capture the shot of shots, however under the circumstances well done,
Best regards and have a nice evening,


Your signature shot continues to amaze me my friend Asbed. The blurry wingspan signifies the flight movement against the dreamy graphism of the frame. Nice image should be blown up and frame.
Thanks and kind regards.

Hello Asbed,
I am impressed by your quick reflexes and panning technique. Wrens are rapid flyers and you were quick to catch this one. It is a little OOF but the features are well seen and the lighting good to provide the contrasting BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Asbed,
Very nice capture of this Marsh Wren in-flight taken from a good point of view and very nice natural colours, even if the quality is not so good but the capture is beautiful!
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day,
Best Regards,

Hi Asbed,
another your dynamic photo of bird in flying. Nice colours and composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Hallo Asbed,
another beautiful capture of a small bird in-flight, a dynamic composition with a very good visual impact
Best regards

Bonjour Asbed,

Tu as bien saisi le déplacement de l'oiseau en vol. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du troglodyte des marais. Malheureusement la netteté n'est pas au rendez-vous mais l'effort y était. la lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hi Asbed,
Much better than I could do! ... I've tried, and all I get are exciting images of weeds and trees !..... ha ... ha ... ha :)... I think I'll try not zoom, indeed! ... Good job, this bird express speed!
Regards / TFS

congrats for you capture Asbed, it-s not easy to capture birds on fly, therefore I appreciate your picture,

a nice evening I wish you,

ciao, tino

Hi Asbed
maybe blurred by motion but great compo, I like the bird in the right half and the green bg leaves on the left, everything but classic and still it works!
