[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
hello friends, i know that the background it is
very heavy and busy, but it is a photo and a
flight of the Black-capped Chickadee that i love

photographyng conditions where bad,
with the lovely sun it was -20 celcius
and with the wind factor until -30 celcius,
photo shot with my Fujifilm bridge
camera in RAW format ISO400

from All About Birds website :


« Song: two or three notes whistled, with first
higher in pitch, "fee-bee-ee." Call:
suggests name "chick-a-dee-dee."

The chickadee's simple-sounding calls have been
found to be extremely complex and language-like.
They code information on identity and recognition of
other flocks as well as predator alarms and contact calls. »

Salut Asbed,
C'est une autre belle composition de cette mésange en vol. Comme je l'ai déjà dit, ce n'est pas facile à faire et c'est quelque chose que je n'ai jamais réussis. Je manque souvent de lumière avec mon zoom F4.5-5.6... Il faisait froid pour faire de la photo aujourd'hui, ouf! Bravo, merci et bonne soirée!

Ciao Ashed,
une autre très belle image de cette Mésange à tete noire en vol; toutes cette photos sont spectaculaires et très difficiles a prendre.
Merci et mes compliments.

Ciao Asbed. L'hai congelato al volo. Otima cattura.


Hi Asbed,
another lovely capture of an in-flight beauty my friend.
Wonderful composition and details.
TFS and have a nice sunday!


Hi Asbed,

TFS, Greetings. Ferran

Hi Asbed,

Another nice shot of a Chickadee in flight. I love the undersides of the wings! I don't know how you stand outside in that cold, windy weather taking all of these shots. We're lucky that you do but your hands must freeze.

Hello Asbed,
Another good in flight for your series, well done my friend.


Thanks for you critiques!
I can see you are just as addicted to in-flight photography as I am ... I think it is a very hard habit to drop :)
You mention the background being busy so I have a question. Is it possible for you to change your position so that you can shoot the birds against the sky ? It might help with the overall composition.
At any rate, very nicely done.

Best Regards,


Hello Asbed

Your in flight captures collection is really good.
The plumage detail of the spread wings shows well.
Good natural colours.
These little ones are fast and erratic so job well done.


Hello Asbed,

again and again and again, you are here a master of inflightshots.
Also these little bird have you managed well.
Beautiful colours.


Hi Asbed,
A nice capture of this chickadee in flight. Good details and a nice composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Bonjour Asbed
Je trouve cette photo du Black-capped Chickadee moins bonne que tes précédentes, mais je comprends les difficultés de prendre de telles photos d'un oiseau en vol, technique que personnellement je ne maitrise pas, j'ai besoin de beaucoup detemps pour cadrer et composer mes photos!
Merci pour le partage de tes resultats
Bien cordialement

Bonjour Asbed,
Superbe prise de vue de cette mésange en vol, il faut tirer plus vite que son ombre pour avoir une telle photo :)) ...Bravo.. jolie prise...et un excellent cliché.
tous mes compliments..
