a beautiful and unusual capture of this house finch in flight; of course, the focus is a tad too soft but it seems the the light was very poor;

Great action shot, Mike, showing this pretty House Finch in flight with his wings fluttering. The uncluttered background shows him off well. Very good lighting and focus. Lovely composition. Suzanne

good capture of the bird wings motion and nice focus on the bird head and eye

good supporting blur background and good separation of the bird from the background

thanks for sharing

Mike,
A beautiful stop action picture of the handsome male House Finch in flight with back lighting. Beautiful composition, framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.

    Thank you very much. The light was quite low and I was forced to use a slower shutter speed than I normally would, but I am of the philosophy that your shoot first and delete them later. This one is a bit soft, but the pose was attractive and the backlight was nice. Glad you like it. Thanks again.

    Mike,
    It is a beautiful picture of this House Finchon the wing & to my eye the slight wing blur adds something that a PERFECT shot would lack...after all life is imperfect & if we make the best of it we can live life to the full.

A very nice nature action shot posted here! Your fine, full and central composition captures an enjoyable "in flight" moment very well indeed. Exposure and sharpness are good. Well done!

Wow Mike, what as beautiful little bird. You caught him in full flight. Legs tucked back. Wings at full spread and I can see he's flying for his life. His coloring is such a beautiful red. Very pretty.

Very cool flight shot! This photo gives a great sense of motion, especially in the wings. He has a nice happy expression on his face. He stands out well against the smooth dark background.

This is really neat! You had to be ready for this. I love seeing the open wings. Most is out of focus but can still see the face ok. I like the action shown and the colors are good and seeing the sun on his side.
