and with a compact (digital) camera we have
a shutter lag, the time i click the bird is moved

from All About Birds website


« Charles Darwin kept pigeons for many years after
returning from his five-year voyage on the Beagle.
His observations on the great variety of pigeon breeds,
and the huge differences found between captive breeds
and wild pigeons, helped him formulate some aspects
of his theory of evolution. »

What a lovely and dynamic capture!
Great colors and details.

A pesar del 1/1200 empleado congelaste bien la imagen, eso si, falta algo de nitidez en el conjunto. El conjunto de lo más original.
Saludos Asbed: J. Ignasi.

Hi Asbed,this is-flight pigeon is very elegant,not seem a fat bird that i know usually.Beautifl light for the best colors,excellent sharpness too.Thanks for share,have a nice day,LUCIANO

Hi Asbed,

Definitely, I had missed your photos in flight! ... this is superb, one notices the cadence of bird flight. Do not worry about the placement on the right, is irrelevant in these cases with the bird in flight.

Another thing ... would be interesting to see the photo of f blackbird couple in-flight! ... strange reason for a Valentine's day, but definitely interesting!

TFS Friend!


Good archival with present gear. Let me pray that this Christmas wish comes true for you...a DSLR and for me a new Scooter so I can "walk" once more! Good show Asbed!

Hi and Good Morning MF Asbed,

A great capture of a rock pigeon in-flight with wonderful POV/DOF, neat details and fine dynamic composition.
TFS and have a nice new day MF!

Ps. Sorry for delaying in commenting since i was verry bussied with educational (both diurnal and nocturnal) obligations yesterday!

hello Asbed
very beautiful composition and presentation,fine the attribution of colours and the sharp details,well done
TFS thanks for sharing

Hi Asbed
Great in flight capture...Outstanding color and detail...TFS

Hallo Asbed
This might be a common bird, but in my personal opinion these are birds that show a pure and/or innocent personality. In my personal opinion people tend to describe this it to easily as "common". The most beautiful part on this image is the bird’s colourful layers of purple and jade in the plumage around the neck. It is a definite eye-catcher. Lovely in motion pose captured. Thanks for sharing. Best regards

bonjour Asbed
une superbe image de ce pigeon, moi j'aime bien de voir plus d'espace derrière l'oiseau, ça donne à l'image une certaine notion de vitesse et de distance parcourue
le focus est superbement réussie
Passe une bonne nuit

Hi Asbed,
the mment of capture is well frozen. I like its classical look and the three layers of the sky, forest and water.
Very well captured in natural view.


Bonjour Asbed,

La prise de vue permet de vpoir les détails et les couleurs du pigeon en vol. Le flou de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'oiseau. Le ciel nuageuc donne un bon contraste aux couleurs. Bonne journée.
