There is nothing as sweet as success and especially if one tried so hard for so long.
This shot was sure worth the while. You didn't just capture a good shot, you really
nailed it. Perfect and super sharp details, wonderful pleasing colours, a beautiful BG
kindly provided by the clear blue sky, and a great composition with the bird pointing
in the upward direction, wings well in motion occupying the lower region in the frame,
and ample space in front of the bird to fly into. Great stuff. I really like every bit of it.
Well done MF and TFS.

Well that has to be worth waiting for good colours and details plus the eye contact.

une excellente photo envol du Pluvier kildir,
avec un excellent POV et cadrage, superbe focus
netteté et détails, une très belle luminosité, le catch-light
à l'oeil qui rend la photo encore plus belle, la position des ailes
et de la queue donnent l'impression de la vitesse de l'envol,
au printemps 2009 j'avais fait une photo envol du Killdeer
avec mon bridge Fujifilm FinePix S6000fd, je rêve d'en
faire un, un jour avec un DSLR comme dans ta photo, TFS

A fantastic photo of this Kildeer in flight. Sharpness and details are amazing. Splendid clear colours. The blue sky in the BG is very beautiful. Very good composition, POV and eye contact. A beauty!

Bravo pour cet exploit! Vraiment pas facile de photographier les oiseaux en vol avec une belle netteté comme ici. On dirait même qu'il t'a vu! Amicalement,

What do I think of it?
Well, that the pose got is very artistic, I found this particular moment of flight so aesthetic.
Besides that, focus spot on, and all those rich and sharp details all over the moving subject.
Just look at that stare!
Great pic and thanks for share it,

I personally think the way this Killdeer has folded it paws against its body is what makes this image special to me, followed by the big eye with its red circle, not forgetting to mention the catch light that is well seen, we then add the beautiful and well detailed wingspan, an extra round of applause for the freeze framed motion of the bird in the sky and we end of with the clear blue sky as background. I can only add to say: "Marvellous photography" Thanks for sharing. Kind regards.

A gorgeous in-flight photo filled with fine detail and beautiful colors. You even managed to capture some catch light in it's eye, which is always a bonus. A super shot and very nicely shown with just the right amount of exposure. Well done!!

Definitely a great photo in flight, with great composition and perfect exposure, for a frozen bird in motion accompanied by a blue in the sky which is a work of art.
Doing this with a compact or bridge is almost impossible! I know only Asbed (CeltickRanger) he able to make good "in flight's" with almost any camera! :-)
TFS and Happy Sunday for you!

Cet oiseau en vol est impressionnant. La prise de vue permet de voir avec précision les détails et les couleurs du Pluvier Killdir. Le sujet est bien cadré. Le beau ciel bleu envoie une lumière qui embellie les couleurs. Bonne journée.

overwhelming in-flight capture, stunningly precise details, perfectly frozen in motion.
Capturing birds in high precision certainly will be beyond a bridge camera's limits.
With a Canon 40D in your hands you seem to have found the perfect tool.
My congratulations! With best regards,
