Hi Mike
Great in-flight capture. Not to often the POV is above the bird unless you are shooting from a cliff. Great timing capturing good eye contact, detail and colour.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hello Mr. Michael,
Beautiful picture of this flying dove.It seems you have captured it just above from ground level.Nice eye contact with motion...I like it.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards and respect,


Hello Mike

Excellent photo of the Morning Dove in-flight,
fine POV obtaining the eye-contact, I see that
your ISO is 250, you could easily shoot at ISO400
or ISO800 (90% of my in-flights with my D5100
I shoot at ISO1000) it would help you to give
more light and speed and if you shoot
in A (aperture) mode like I do, with the ISO1000
the camera depending the light it is choosing
very fast shutter speeds up to 1/4000s, TFS

Hello Mike,
You were very fortunate to capture this guy inflight since they are extremely fast fliers. I don't know how you managed to focus since they are so unpredictable in their movements. 1/1000 of a second is pretty fast, but I believe I would have tried at least 1/2000 if you could get away with it next time. Good eye contact.
