[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This mocking bird was flying from branch to branch. Unfortunately the branch was in the way, but caught the wings and upcurved tail ... tail usually straight when not in flight.

Hello Michael
this is a suspense shot showing the in flight bird among the branches. Well composed with the sharpness and details so intact. The shiny eye among the branches make this presentation very interesting and attractive.


timely taken image of beautiful bird. good ligting and framing. tfs.

Hi Michael
obviously the branch is a problem, but it surely was even more difficult to get the bird in flight and in focus with these branches
and somehow it gives a natural touch

在快速移動中 還可以照這清楚
真不是容易的事 真得很美

Hello Mike

Great shot of this Mocking Bird with excellent
timing just before its take-off flight, fine POV,
superbly focused trough the branches, TFS
