the Eos 7D did a good job in this difficult flight shot with high risk of burning the whites

Hello Tom,
Fantastic photo of this Common Shelduck in flight. Good sharpness and splendid colours against a very beautiful blue sky in the background. Impressive eye contact and composition.

Hi Tom,
excellent photo of this bird in flight. Amazing colours. I like the blue sky in the background. Excellent composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Tom

Probably I am in error, but here your low ISO
of only 250 it also helped to not burn the whites,
excellent in-flight shot of the Common Shelduck,
with fine POV and framing, from its flight pose
we can feel the speed, TFS

Hello Tom,

Beautiful Shelduck against blue sky with perfect flight pose..well captured. tfs.

Hallo Tom
An excellent in flight shot of this Common Shelduck. The colours are nice and warm and beautifully seen in the sunlight. The detail is sharp, with the movement frozen perfectly. The blue shy is a perfect background and create an ideal frame around the bird. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
