House sparrow

Shooting in-flight sparrows keeps me occupied these days, as I haven't got the time to get out of the city.

Luckily, many birds live in town too, plenty pigeons and sparrows..

Another sparrow

Hello Dan,
Fine in-flight shot of a male House Sparrow shown in his best colours. Excellent focusing, timing, lighting and composition against a pleasing blurred pond water BG.
Nice shot!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Dan
The last flying male was great but this one is even better, due to better light conditions and nice BG!

Hi Dan.
Wonderful action shot.Perfectly caught this beautiful pose.Very good timing and well focused.Great work!
TFS,with greeting Milos.

Great capture of this sparrow in flight Dan.
This is much more difficult than capturing a much slower big bird like and eagle :)
Wonderful, light, details in the feathers and pose of the bird with it's wings turnd foreward.
Composition and sharpness are excellent like the exposure aso is.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards, Harry

Bella y oportuna toma del gorrión. Buen enfoque a pesar de la dificultad por el movimiento del ave. Colores reales. Saludos Dan.

Hi Dan, awesome stationary flight shot of this sparrow. Your timing on this one was perfect. Very good lighting, with excellent capture of the colour and detail.

Hola Dan,
hermosa captura,
preciosos detalles,
excelente pov,

Hi Dan.
Excellent to capture him with wings coming in, well done. A natural moment of flight with good detail in the sparrow and wings. Shallow DOF makes him stand out really great.

This is beautiful!! What graceful curves of the wings - wonderful position you caught.
Beautiful shot!

Hallo Dan
What a brilliant shot. Maybe one day, I'll also accomplish in taking a photo of a bird soaring in the sky. Up to date I only had near misses, and I really admire people like you that succeed in these shots. This is a masterpiece and I am quite jealous. This Sparrow has a beautiful and detailed wingspan, and you were very lucky to be equipped with your camera and all the technical goodies at the right time. You have managed to capture this bird in flight in perfect pose and the noticeable fine points are astonishing. What made an impact on me the most is the clear visibility of the eyes. Excellent photography and a dream photo. I enjoyed this one. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.
