Hello friends.

Actually i have photographed
65 species of birds in-flight,
the Swamp Sparrow was the 62th.

1/4000s f/11.0 ISO1000
50mm (35mm eq:75mm)

from the All About Birds website

« The simple trills of the Swamp Sparrow
ring in spring and summer across eastern
and central North America. Its name is
appropriate, as it does live in swamps,
but it can be found in a wide range
of other wetland habitats too. »

Pretty clear shot for the size. I like the orange colouring Swamp Sparrows have. I've only seen 2 of them so far. Good detail in this with and excellent wing pattern and silhouette to it. It seems nicely framed as well. Lots of space for it to go. Nice one Asbed. TFS Trevor

P.S.- I see that there are fewer birds now. They started going south a couple weeks ago here in Sudbury, Ontario. The varying hare is almost white already too. Must mean an early winter. Winds are gusting in now. I hope to get bird shots of the last few species still here. We should have Redpolls coming through soon.

Hello Asbed,

A very nice inflight image of this small songbird against a large blue sky. These smaller birds with the not so colorful plumage often get overlooked in today's digital age for some reason. Your presentation illustrates their gracefulness & beauty well!



Hello Asbed,
A great in-flight capture with fine details, composition & framing. Well done & presented. Nice work & TFS...mon ami. Regards & best wishes!

Bonjour Asbed,
Bien charmante ton image de moineau fendant le ciel bleu de son vol rapide..
Bravo pour avoir réussi à photographier en vol tant d'espèces.

Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely inflight sparrow on beautiful blue sky, excellent sharpness, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Asbed,
interesting photo of this bird. Nice composition with really blue sky.
Thanks for sharing,

Bonjour Asbed,

L'emplacement de l'oiseau dans le cadrage indqiue le mouvement. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du Bruant des marais en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
