Hi Amoli. Very nice photos and a lovely subject.

If I may make a suggestion - try push your shutter speed down to or is it up to 1/4000 at f8 and ISO 500. At 1/4000 the wings will freeze in even more detail. I am no professional but I find this works for me.

Looking forward to seeing more of your shots.

For the past few weeks I have been going out between 08:00 and 10:00 and setting up the camera and focused on my feeding tray. These are some of the in flight shots I managed to get.

Red-winged starling.

Grey-go-away bird - I must admit that this name does not appeal to me. Much prefer Grey loerie (turaco).

Burchells coucal.

More to follow.
