Nice action shot Pam.
It will be better and better.
Very good details and composition.
Just a little noise but it's not disturbing.
Very well done.

I like blurred wings - it makes more action on this superb shot.

Indeed. What a nice capture. You certainly not shy with the bread for them. :) Nice try, really. Well done Pam.

Catching birds flying is not easy, and you've done very well here, with your subject right in the side light. In fact, it's nice to have this ray coming just on the bird and it's feeder, leaving the background in the dark. These shots are IMO amongst the most rewarding ones because it asks for good photographic skills... plus patience. Well done, Pam. Philip's WS is a good contribution to your work.

Pam, Very good, you stocked the feeder very well I see! ;-) This is great for your first attempt at a bird in-flight. I might suggest next time try shooting into a better lit BG as it appears here your BG is in shadow. With more light you might end-up with a bit higher F stop & better results? Also, tripod for these shots if at all possible. Hope I've helped?

Excellent result for a single practical exercises the practice can surpass this good eye that you have in the captures greetings Joan

Very good shot, much better than any flying shot I've managed so far.
I am in no position to give advice really but I would say manually pre-focus, there's nothing more annoying than the camera re-focusing on the background at the last second. Use continous shooting so you get lots of pictures!
Also, I think you'll agree the foreground is over-exposed. Check the exposure beforehand by just photographing the feeder and keeping the correct settings (use manual mode). In this case the background would be almost black, improving the effect.
