Bonjour Asbed,

L'oiseau est bien placée dans le cadrage. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la guifette noire en vol. Une bonne gestion de la lumière qui rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hi Asbed,

Your experiment using the LCD screen was highly successful. This picture of the Tern is wonderful with lovely colors and details. Do I see an opened beak? I'm looking forward to seeing your grouses and woodcocks. Give Ranger a kiss for me!


Hello Asbed,
And this has a background of championship! ... excellent!, and the bird simply "moves", "flies", "bends" ... amazing, everything is appreciated seeing the photo!
TFS, Regards, Jesús

Good Morning MF Asbed,

Hello Asbed,
Another fine in-flight of a Black Tern.
I like the POV and timing showing rthe light-coloured rump and slightly open reddish beak, taken with nice sharpness and colours against what is usual for you: a nice habitat BG.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful shot. I like your all highly dynamic shots; which none other than you is capable of doing. TFS
Regards Subhash

Hi Asbed,
You really managed to let this bird stand out in it's background. Very clear detail and beautiful color. You just have it to be able to catch the birds in flight. Something I still have to learn. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Hi, Asbed,
Beautiful capture of this Black Tern.
Best regards,

Hello Asbed,
good sharpness of the bird against the green leaves. I like the elegance in its fulls spread of the wing.
Superb view and special capture from you.


Well focused in-flight Asbed, good detail and I like the pose..
The inclusion of the habitat here works well for this.
Nice shot :)

Hi Asbed!
How are you? You are a specialist in captures of birds in flight. This is another great shot with great focus on the subject and nice blurred BG.
Excellent composition with the bird perfeclty placed in the scene.
Congratulations my friend.
