Yes, its great in-flight shot of a beautiful bird. Excellent exposure and very nice clean colours. Timing is perfect and details/sharpness of the bird image are so impressive.
Well done and kind wishes.

güzel bir tür uçarken hem de bonuslu kadrajlamışsın
bakış açısı, zamanlama ve renkleri başarılı bir çalışma olmuş
I have seen almost all European corvid species, except for Siberian jay. I thought this colorful bird ideantic with Siberian Jay, in first view. After read your notes, it is an exotic bird, probably introduce species like parrots. You are lucky to see it and to take a its great shot in flight. Wonderful moment, great POV and focus. Eyes contact, light and colors also superb. Thanks for sharing, have a nice week
